DID YOU KNOW THAT LOBSTERS ARE BIOLOGICALLY IMMORTAL?
Most animals eventually get old and die. But a few lucky species don't seem to feel the weight of time, and just keep going and going! Spiny lobsters are biologically immortal. They do die, but they don't seem to age. They can be killed by a predator, a disease, or a catastrophic change in the environment. But unlike humans, they rarely die simply because they get old.
Lobsters, when they die, seem to die from external causes. They get fished by humans, eaten by seals, wasted by parasites, but they don't seem to die from within. Of course, no one really knows how the average lobster dies. There are no definitive studies.
