... Meet Lola
CNN) -- There's always another strange crustacean out there somewhere.
There are blue lobsters and yellow lobsters. Something on YouTube called a Japanese mitten lobster. Giant cannibal shrimp in the Gulf of Mexico and supergiant albino shrimplike creatures off New Zealand.
Then there's Lola. The six-clawed lobster showed up at the Maine State Aquarium in West Boothbay Harbor last week, a gift from Capt. Peter Brown and lobsterman Richard Figueiredo of the fishing vessel Rachael Leah, which hauled in the hexa-clawed creature off the coast of Massachusetts.
Weighing in at four pounds, Lola has a normal claw on her right side, but on the left has five smaller claws, arranged sort of like the five fingers of a human hand.
"This claw deformity is a genetic mutation," Aimee Hayden-Roderiques, manager of the aquarium, told CNN affiliate WMTW-TV. "Sometimes they have this throughout their life, sometimes this happens during a regeneration from a damaged or lost claw."
Hayden-Roderiques said Lola will soon be on display with some of those other strange lobsters, the blue ones, the yellow ones and even half-and-half colored ones.
"We're kind of the place for unusual lobsters," she told the Bangor Daily News. "Everyone who comes in wants to see the weird lobsters."
