Blue crustacean, with the exception of the species of Blue Crab, are very rare occurrances in nature. The Lobster Institute in Maine says that there are only around two million blue lobsters in the oceans. That is two million among the two hundred million caught each year. A very small amount compared to the amount there are.
Blue lobsters are very rare. They may not be the most rare animal ever, but they are certainly close to the top of the list. There are very few people who know that they exist, let alone have ever seen one. The discovery of a blue lobster was certainly an amazing find.
Blue lobsters are not rare; in fact, they can be bought for a relatively reasonable price from pet vendors. Other endangered animals, such as Siberian tigers, are much less abundant than blue lobsters. With this in mind, it is quite easy to determine that blue lobsters are not that rare.
According to science, the Sunda rhinocerous is the most rare animal in the world. Or at least, it is near the very top. The blue lobster has far too many of its kind in a far too vast ecosystem to be considered the most rare animal. In fact, lemurs are more rare.
