Instead of serving him as a meal, a restaurant in the US state of Ohio has donated a rare blue lobster to a zoo. The Zoo in the city of Akron claims to have taken care of the animal after restaurant staff discovered what rare animal they were dealing with.

The restaurant employees gave the shellfish the name Clawde, a pun after the English word claw (claw or scissors). The unusual blue color of the lobster is the result of a gene mutation. The color only occurs in 1 in 2 million copies.

At the zoo, the crustacean now lives in a special swimming basin called Clawde’s Man Cave (Clawde’s Man Cave).
