Panacea, FL - The Gulf Specimen Marine Laboratories now has now has one of the most unique sea creatures on display. Just last week the aquarium received an albino blue crab. It was given to them by Huttons Seafood & More. Huttons Seafood said Tim Mispel caught the crab near Aucilla and thought it was unique. Huttons brought the crab to the aquarium thinking it would be beneficial to the them and the aquarium thinks so too. "There's always tigers in zoo that people are attracted to, but this is a smaller little guy and he's quite unique and he's just an amazing animal in himself," said Cypress Rudloe, Executive Director of the Aquarium.
