Rare albino lobsters caught off coast of Maine

Two fishermen in Maine may want to consider buying lottery tickets. They just defied the odds and caught not one but two extremely rare albino lobsters -- each one considered one in 100 million.

The Portland Press Herald reports that the lobsters were caught on two separate expeditions near Owls Head and the Rockland breakwater this week.

These two special lobsters don't need to worry about becoming anyone's dinner. One of the colorless crustaceans will reside in the Maine State Aquarium in Boothbay Harbor, while the other will go to Brooks Trap Mill in Thomaston, Maine.
