7 Forbidden Lobster

Most American lobsters are either greenish-brown or olive-green in color, and sometimes, they have black, dark green, reddish, or orange speckles. However, in 2009, a man named Captain Pete Begley caught a rare blue lobster that looked like it was spray-painted.

It is thought that the lobster got its unique blue coloration due to a genetic defect that caused it to produce a higher than normal amount of a particular protein. These lobsters are so rare that they occur once in every two million!

Similarly, in 2018, a Canadian lobsterman found a pastel lobster that had a baby blue color. Not knowing what to do with this unique catch, the man donated it to the Huntsman Marine Science Centre, where experts tried to figure out whether the lobster’s color was caused due to an unusual diet or genetic mutation.

If you are a fan of jelly beans, seeing a coast filled with them might be too tempting.

However, these are not the bean-shaped sugar candies that you love so much. These are actually glass “pebbles.” Known as Glass Beach, this magical-looking area exists on Russia’s Pacific shoreline, and it did not always look like this.

During the Soviet Era, truckloads of cracked porcelain and broken vodka bottles were dumped here, and over the following years, their sharp edges were smoothed away by the waves, turning them into shiny, colorful pebbles. A similar-looking beach also exists in Fort Bragg, California. (1, 2)

Is that a funky-looking ravioli? Though it looks like your favorite stuffed pasta, it is actually a baby stingray!

As you may already know, stingrays have flat and wide bodies, and they look more translucent when they are young. What you may not know is that stingrays are fish even though they don’t look like them. A close relative to sharks, stingrays do not have bones. Their body is supported entirely by cartilage.

Although stingrays are edible and quite famous in some parts of the world, you would not want to put baby stingrays in your mouth, thinking they are ravioli! (1, 2)

For a blueberry cheesecake, this may look a little dry and even a bit crunchy, but you may start craving some anyway. However, before you imaging taking a bite, know that it is hard too!

This is actually amethyst, a variety of quartz that is famous for its striking violet or purple color. As a semiprecious stone, it is used in making jewelry and it is also the birthstone for people born in February.

Ancient Greeks believed that the gem protects its wearer from drunkenness, which is why they regularly wore amethyst and made drinking vessels out of it, thinking that it would protect them from intoxication. (1, 2)
