Lobster Fun Facts
Do they Feel pain? Scream when boiled alive?
Apparently this is not so. They don’t scream in pain when you cook them. The noise you hear is air that has been trapped in the stomach and forced through the mouth after being out of water for short periods of time. According to science, lobsters do not have vocal chords, and neither can they process pain. (Still sounds eerie to me though.)
What happens if a lobster loses a claw?
Yes Virginia there is a Santa Clause. As unbelievable as it sounds, lobsters can regenerate limbs. It will take probably a good five years for a one-pound lobster to regenerate a claw that was lost. But it will. So now I know where they got the idea for Deadpool and his regenerating claw. I mean him regenerating his hand idea.
Female Lobsters make the first move
That is correct. Female Lobsters are players and they always make the first move. Of course there is not much to the courtship. Females that have just shed their shells send out a pheromone to let the males know they are in the mood.
Just in case you were wondering. Usually, lobsters that shed their shells are vulnerable and could be eaten by other lobsters. Why because lobsters eat each other. However a female can shed her shell letting everyone know she is you know – ready. The male lobster will usually always choose to mate with her rather than killing her.
They never stop growing?
Apparently, it is said and well researched that crabs never stop growing. Every year till they reach the age of seven years old they molt and shed their shell. Every time they do this they grow bigger. After seven years old the molt and shed their shell every three years all the while continuing to grow.
