PROVIDENCE, R.I. — It's not made of gold, but a yellow lobster pulled from Rhode Island's Narragansett Bay is very rare.

Lobsterman Denny Ingram says he found the lobster in one of his pots the bay's East Passage last week. It is golden on the top and bright yellow on both sides.

Experts say the genetic feature is very rare, occurring in about 1 in 30 million lobsters.

It's also apparently good luck for this lobster, who will not be heading to anyone's dinner table.

Ingram says he plans to keep the yellow lobster on display at the fishermen's co-op at the State Pier in Newport.
