We like freaky lobsters here at DN. See our collection of stories. Here is another.
Harley Quinn, a star attraction at the Scarborough Sea Life Center in Britain, added to its legacy recently when it shed its shell and emerged with newer, more vibrant colors, leaving the crustacean with its most brilliant coloring to date, according to MailOnline.
The two-toned lobster, said to be a 1-in-50,000,000 rarity, was caught by a fisherman in 2010 and donated to Sea Life, which cares for the crustacean and has it on public display.
The fact that its claws are the same colors as the opposite side of its body adds to its rarity.
Nice name. Harley Quinn comes the word harlequin, comedic servants of the old Italian theater back in the day who wore colorful costumes with a checker pattern. The name might be taken from Harley Quinn, one of Batman’s enemies and girlfriend of The Joker.
