WATCH: Blue lobster molting at Maine State Aquarium

Blue-Lobster-as-Rare-as-1-in-2-Million-Caught-Off-the-Coast-of-Maine-USThe Maine State Aquarium says their maintenance team caught Lila the blue lobster molting earlier this week.  Typically, lobsters shed once a year once they are at a reproducing age. When they are young and growing it is much more frequent, and when they are older, it is much less than this. Eventually it stops altogether, but there is no set time frame or age for this. Berried females also skip the annual molting cycle, according to the Maine State Aquarium. Watch the video here 08:10
