BOOTHBAY HARBOR, Maine (AP) — An unusual six-clawed lobster has been donated to the Maine State Aquarium in West Boothbay Harbor.
Named Lola, the unusual lobster was caught by a fishing crew off the coast of Hyannis, Mass.
Aquarium Manager Aimee Hayden-Roderiques says on one side where a singular claw would be Lola has five lobster claws arranged in a starfish pattern and on the other side a normal claw. She tells WMTW-TV (http://bit.ly/1fIUuab ) that the claw deformity is a genetic mutation that lobsters can have throughout their life or from regrowth from a damaged or lost claw.
Lola is expected to go on display in the next several days.
