No, you’re not just seeing things. This split-colored lobster displays a condition known as gynandromorphy, meaning it is half male, half female. In this case, the blue side is the female side, and the brown side is the male side. This genetic variation occurs in about 1 out of every 50 million lobsters. Gynandromorphs aren’t always split neatly down the middle; they can also be calico patterned. Via: AsapSCIENCE

Good Morning Defender! Does anyone ever get tired of seeing a gentle giant? If you could please help sign a petition at http://www.sharkdefenders.com it would mean a lot to a lot of sharks. Scroll down. It's titled "Stand by your vote". We need to make our CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) motion slam dunk permanent. They are having a hearing on Thursday which could overturn the victory we took on Monday. A strong petition could be the coup de grace for our finning enemies. CITES is in Thailand.
