PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A couple of lobstermen from Maine believe they've made a pretty rare catch.

Herbert and Andrew Goulden say they caught what appears to be a calico lobster around noon on Saturday, four miles off shore out of the Kennebunk River.

Calico lobsters are exceedingly rare, the odds of one having the mottled black and orange coloring are 1 in 30-million.

Herb is a third generation lobsterman and Andrew has his apprentice license.  They say the crustacean is still alive.
