A calico lobster! (Need I say more?)

(Apparently it's non-mammal day at GraniteGeek.) I haven't visited the New England Aquarium in years, but I may have to take a jaunt down to Boston one of these days. They've received a calico-colored lobster! More description here. The lobster was caught off Winterport, Maine; it isn't on display at the moment, but might be down the road.
They're much rarer than blue lobsters (although not as rare as white lobsters). The aquarium in Boston says roughly 1 out of every 30 million lobsters are calico.
I now have Michael Nesmith's (non-Monkee) song "Me and My Calico Girlfriend" in my head, but that's OK because it's a great song.
