    Lobsters usually only turn orange after they are cooked. Only one in about ten million sport the color orange when they are alive. The lobster is on display at a restaurant in Naples.

    New England fishermen had a rare catch for a southwest Florida chef: four colorful lobsters.

    Three orange lobsters and a yellow, blue and brown lobster were caught recently off Maine for Bill Sarro, owner of Bill's Steak and Seafood in Naples.

    Sarro tells the Naples Daily News that he thought the lobsters had been cooked when saw pictures of them, but his son assured him the lobsters were still alive.

    The lobsters won't be cooked. One orange lobster has been named Martha and will be displayed at Sarro's Naples restaurant. The calico-colored lobster will be displayed at Sarro's seafood market in Mansfield, Massachusetts.

    Another orange lobster will be displayed at Sarro's restaurant in North Attleboro, Massachusetts, and the third will be donated to the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
