Red Lobster workers save Cheddar, an orange lobster now in an aquarium


For a moment, it looked like Cheddar – a rare bright orange lobster – had met its demise. She had arrived at a Red Lobster restaurant in Hollywood, Florida, and seemed destined to suffer the same fate as many lobsters before her.

But by a twist of fate, the employees of the restaurant chain came to her rescue. Led by manager Mario Roque, they were able to spare the lobster’s life and find him a new home at Ripley’s Aquarium in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

“Sometimes ordinary miracles happen, and Cheddar is one of them,” Roque said in an aquarium press release. “An incredible group of people helped us make this possible. We are so honored to have been able to save Cheddar and find him a good home.

According to the press release, employees had noticed its unique coloring, which scientists say has a probability of 1 in 30 million because “their bright and unusual coloring makes them very attractive to predators.”

The cheddar, a rare orange lobster, was rescued by workers from a Red Lobster restaurant in Florida and transported to an aquarium in South Carolina.

According to the Smithsonian Institution, most lobsters are “mottled brown in color.”

Ripley’s employees traveled to Florida, where they loaded cheddar cheese — named after the famous Red Lobster cookies — into a cooler and took her home.
