Mean Thieves Steal Rare Albino Lobster Specimen

27 August 2000


Can you help find this missing lobster ? 15 year old albino lobster ‘Ariel’, so named because he is bright white, has gone missing from Newquay’s Sea-life centre. His absence was discovered earlier in the week by curator Karl Thompson who fears he may have been cooked ! “We found a fire and some flat stones”, said Mr. Thompson. Blue and Black lobsters can live for up 100 years in the wild, but albino lobsters rarely survive in the wild. Ariel was caught 3 years ago by a local fisherman who donated him to the centre where he was a star attraction and a great educational aid.
