Mike Billings, a fisherman from the US, has published photos of his most recent and unusual catch — a "ghost lobster," a peculiar crustacean with an almost completely transparent shell that he caught close to Stonington, Connecticut. The transparency of the lobster's shell can be explained by a rare genetic condition — Leucism, which causes the crustacean's shell to lose pigmentation.
According to Billings, such lobsters are extremely rare, as the chances of catching one are 1 to 100 million. The fisherman released the lobster, as it was too small to keep.
This is not the first time that Billings has caught a rare type of lobster, as in 2014 he found one with a blue claw.
