    Josh O’Brien told WSCH-TV he found a baby claw growing out of a lobster’s normal claw.

    “Out of all the thousands of lobsters we catch every week and everything we've caught so far this year, this is only the second of its kind we've seen,” O'Brien said. 

    The lobsterman cautioned against allowing the unusual growth to turn stomachs, telling WSCH the lobster is fine to eat. 

    “It's neat to see something like this out of the ordinary and keeps things interesting on the boat.”
