A yellow lobster was discovered in Rhode Island's Narragansett Bay last week by Lobsterman Denny Ingram. The chances of finding this genetically rare lobster? Approximately 1 in 30 million.
Ingram tells the Providence Journal that the lobster, which is golden on top and bright yellow on both sides, is about a pound and a quarter, "A perfect little male."
