NOVA SCOTIA, CANADA - Blue moons are rare. They happen once every couple of years, but here's something that's seldom seen in this world: blue lobsters! The chances of nabbing one of these blue beauties are one in two million, but incredibly, over the past week, fisherman off the coast of Canada have caught two!

The first blue lobster, deliciously dubbed "Blueberry," was discovered in the waters off Alder Point, Nova Scotia. "Blueberry" was released back into the ocean. Then, a second blue lobster, named "Opal," was caught about 93 miles from Low Point, Nova Scotia. "Opal" will be kept in a tank until the end of lobster season.

As for you lobster lovers lickin' your lips right about now...Blue lobsters are seen as a sign of good luck and prosperity, so you definitely won't see these two "blue-tiful" creatures served with a side of butter!
