Shelter director Liz Keller said the lamb caught a break. She apparently escaped from a live animal market where she would have been sold for food.

Steve Hatch holds a rare blue lobster that he and his uncle Robert Green caught Sunday, June 10, 2007 in a trap at the mouth of the Thames River in New London, Conn. The two donated the lobster to the Mystic Aquarium and Institute of Exploration where it will be used in one of the aquarium’s classrooms. The blue coloring is the result of a genetic defect and only occurs in one out of every 3 million lobsters, according to Catherine Ellis, the aquarium’s curator of fish and invertebrates. The aquarium also has two other blue lobsters. (AP Photo/The Day, Milton Moore) **
