>> The New England Aquarium says the 1-pound female lobster has an orange side and a black side, with the colors split perfectly down the middle......The rare lobster is known as a split. ... Officials say such rare Halloween coloration is estimated to occur once in every 50 million lobsters. <<http://www.wtop.com/681/3101435/Halloween-colored-lobster-ca...Picture at the link.arrete
It happens sometimes in cats and dogs also. One half their face will be one color and the other half another. Very interesting. I think it has something to do with co-dominance or incomplete dominance of genes. Picture of a cat with half one color half another: http://www.google.com/imgres?hl=en&gbv=2&biw=1016&am...Art
Here is another example of how something like this can happen. It's called chimerism. When Two became one:"Tests eventually showed Jane was a chimera - her mother had been pregnant with non-identical twins who had fused together in the womb to make one person."http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/3264467.stmOr like my momma used to say, "truth is stranger than fiction."
