Lobsterman Marley Babb caught the rare crustacean at Tenant’s Harbor in Saint George and donated it to UNE.

Officials say Banana weighs about 1 pound to 1.5 pounds and they have no plans of buttering up this beauty.

The school will be housing the lobster as they work on a lobster research project.
