(WCSH) A rare blue lobster has found a permanent home at the Maine State Aquarium.

14 year-old Meghan Laplante was out pulling traps with her dad on Saturday when they pulled up the rare blue lobster.

"When we pulled it up we saw the blue and we were so amazed at the color, and my dad said, 'Put it in the tank right away'" Laplante said

She named the lobster Skyler, and on Tuesday she and her family packed him up to deliver him to his new home.
