In 2013, there was a lot of articles on the Internet about how lobsters lived in function, but this is not entirely true.
Lobsters can live very long. For example, European male lobsters have an average life expectancy of about 31 years, while female lobsters have an average life expectancy of 54 years. Some lobsters can even live 70 years old.
Lobsters are not immortal, but the aging process is very slow and grows throughout life.
Many people think that lobsters can live forever because they are very slow, and after molting, we often can’t see the signs of aging with the naked eye.
In fact, lobsters, unlike mammals, grow particularly rapidly during puberty and stop growing in adulthood, while lobsters are growing slowly throughout their lives. This slow but steady growth pattern reduces the rate of decay of lobster cells, allowing them to live longer.
The largest lobster in history is a 40-pound monster captured on the coast of Nova Scotia.
In the United States, a large lobster was captured and eventually released.
