ABC News reports of a true miracle that happened this past weekend off the coast of Maine: a blue lobster—which, statistically speaking, is a one-in-two million find—was caught in a trap.

Jay LaPlante, who works at Miss Meghan Lobster Catch, brought his daughter Meghan along with him that fateful Saturday for a lobster fishing trip and certainly didn’t return empty handed.

Nicknamed “Skyler,” the beautiful blue crustacean—whose unique hue is apparently brought about by a genetic defect—will be moved to the Maine State Aquarium.
