BOSTON » A Massachusetts fisherman has caught a rare lobster known as a "split" that is colored to match Halloween.

The New England Aquarium says the one-pound female lobster has an orange side and a black side, with the colors perfectly split down the middle.

Officials say such coloration is estimated to occur once in every 50 million lobsters.

The fisherman who caught the seasonally-colored crustacean is from Beverly, a seaside community 20 miles northeast of Boston..

Aquarium officials say that in the last 10 years, splits have been caught in Maine, Rhode Island and Nova Scotia.
