Are lobsters different colors?
as a lobster: is just a tale. Lobsters come
in just about every color but red. They can be blue, light
yellow, greenish-brown, grey, dusty orange, some calico, and
some with spots. However, they all turn red when they hit
hot water. The hot water cuts the link between astaxanthin,
a red substance contained in the lobster's shell, and protein
which in cold water brings out the predominant coloring.
