Posted: Updated:

In an unexpected turn of events, a rare lobster on its way to Mystic Aquarium has died.

The extremely rare, multicolored calico lobster was caught somewhere off the Atlantic seaboard and weighed about 1.25 pounds.

The yellow-and-black spotted lobster, named Katie, came into port Thursday, according to its buyer, Tri-Town Foods of Connecticut.

It was due to be donated to Mystic Aquarium on Friday.

Scientists said the find was one in 30 million.
