Maine fisherman Alex Todd caught the rare white lobster on Aug. 24.

“I’ve never seen a white one. This one was translucent with just a hint of blue in it,” Todd, of Chebeague Island, told ABC News. The Maine Coast Fishermen’s Association thinks the lobster had a partial loss of pigment due to a genetic condition called leucism. Todd through the unique creature back into the ocean after noticing it was a female and had been marked for carrying eggs.
