Rock Lobster: Rare crustacean named after Bowie

There were a spate of news stories earlier this week about the discovery, made by Maine lobsterman Jacob Knowles, of a lobster that was not only half blue and half reddish-brown, but half male and half female. Knowles named the lobster Bowie, and has been doing a lot of media showing off his find, which he hopes to breed (actually he hopes to see if it can produce and fertilize its own eggs). According to one news report I saw (click on the bolded word to link to the story, which has its own video that actually features images of David Bowie), this was a one in 50 million type of lobster.
