The marine ecology research and teaching facility, in Norris Point on the province’s west coast, introduced Snappers, a four-clawed lobster, on its Facebook page on Wednesday.

The curious crustacean was caught in Chimney Cove by Morris Brake, according to the post, and was named by Abigail Hann, Cameron Crocker and Hannah Crocker.

The Bonne Bay Marine Station opened in 2002 and is operated by Memorial University and the Gros Morne Co-Operating Association.

The station is inviting the public to drop by the aquarium to meet Snappers in person.
