Frank Gorshin's Pet Lobster Has Been Found

When Frank Gorshin died last year, little did anyone know he had a pet lobster.

Well, it's been caught.

Seems it was the only crustacean suitable for the man who played the protagonist/antagonist (depending on how you look at it) in a memorably none-too-subtle episode of Star Trek.

The rare 1-pound crustacean, caught earlier this week in Steuben, is a genetic mutation with a two-toned shell.

One side is the usual mottled dark green. The other side is the orange-red shade of a lobster that's already spent some time in the hot pot.
