    • Let me guess, once given a better diet it turned red again? It’s like a flamingo it gets its color from its food. In the lobster’s case, it doesn’t get enough carotenoids from plants.

    • Fun fact: lobsters have been found that are entirely yellow or even two colors but bisected by a line going down the middle of the lobster. Crawfish also can be blue and other variations of color, and are popular aquarium additions.
