You would think most fishermen are out to catch fish, but this past weekend, Jere Lacoske, a fisherman in Waterford, Connecticut, caught something very unexpected.

According to CBS Connecticut, Lacoske caught a rare yellow lobster — a lobster that is only caught one in 30 million times.

The female lobster resembles that of a cooked lobster instead of the typical dark coloring of most common lobsters, which makes it rare.

Fisherman Lacoske wishes to put the lobster on display at an aquarium to share the rare beauty with other undersea creature lovers.
