Florida – A very rare lobster made its way from caught to almost plate before an employee noticed it was special.
Red Lobster is known for its seafood and the ability to pick out your lobster from a tank to be steamed fresh and on your plate shortly afterward. This week a team member from a Hollywood, Fla. Red Lobster found a lobster in their food shipment that stopped them in their tracks, an orange lobster.
“What do you do when you find a rare, one-in-30-million orange lobster in your lobster tank? You name her Cheddar, of course, and find her a new home.”
That home was Ripley’s Aquarium of Myrtle Beach. Where she will live on in her own specialized cold water tank, she will be on display to talk about some of the natural rare variants that occur with lobsters.
“Employees immediately went on a mission to rescue the unique crustacean and Ripley’s Aquarium of Myrtle Beach answered the call, happily welcoming the extraordinary orange lobster, “Cheddar” to her new forever home.
Cheddar joins Ripley’s Aquarium of Myrtle Beach as it celebrates a major milestone – 25 years of welcoming guests, making memories, and promoting awareness of conservation.
