I'm not an expert with them, but they are a lobster and can be pretty tasty. I would assume you could care for one like any other lobster.

The color is the only thing that doesn't match up. If you compare the pictures from the Wikipedia page, they look almost identical. The issue comes from the fact that they are pink/orange and what you have does not show that vivid color. As stated before, I am no expert in this discussion, but you can see an orange hue around the dull coloration in your pictures. It might be possible coloration is from stress or this coloring happens before molting.

It is, basically, prawn transparent. And, as yet, unidentified.
