Instead of processing it as food, a restaurant in the US state of Ohio has housed a rare blue lobster in a zoo.
The facility in the city of Akron claims to have taken in the animal after employees of the restaurant had discovered it in a delivery and recognized the rarity of the blue bowl.
Following the example of the restaurant mascot, the employees gave the animal the name “Clawde” – apparently a play on words with the English word “claw” (claw or scissors). The reason for the unusual color is a gene mutation.
Veterinarian determined gender
Shortly afterwards the zoo gave an update. The lobster is a female. Clawde therefore quickly became Clawdia. A veterinarian examined the lobster lady and determined the correct gender.
And so not only the name of the animal changed, but also the special pool. This was first christened “Clawde’s Man Cave”. Now it bears the name «she-shed». (SDA / ymh)
