Triple pincer clawed lobster caught

A Gloucester, Massachusetts, lobster dealer made an unusual discovery over the weekend.

Joey Ciaramitaro found a triple-pincer in a shipment that he received on Saturday at the wholesale business he owns with his cousin.

Lobsters usually have a crusher claw and a pincer claw. This lobster has an extra pincer. It's an unusual sight even for a veteran lobster dealer.

"We've seen blue lobsters, we've seen albino lobsters, and we've seen half-white lobsters split right down the middle of the shell, but I had never see one quite like this one," Ciaramitaro said.
