Lobsters are potentially immortal!


Scientists have recently discovered that lobsters might have the potentially live forever. That is, unless it's in front of you while you're wearing a bib at Red Lobster. Scientists have described lobsters as 'eating, molting, and growing machines.'

Lobsters don't stop growing. The biggest one's they've observed weigh more than 40 pounds. However, they think there could be much bigger lobster in the ocean because it appears lobsters just wear out very slowly.

More specifically, lobsters show no signs of aging. They don't lose appetite, sex drive, energy or even experience changes in metabolism as they grow older. This means that barring predators or disease, they really could potentially live forever.
