As they age they get bigger but never lose agility, reproductive urge or ability and no decline in strength or health.

I'm pretty sure it`s actually "telamerase".


Actually, we`re both spelling it incorrectly :)

It`s "telomerase"

Accept it is impossible to tell the age of a lobster without just watching it from birth.

This is a plausible thoery, not a fact.

I'm guessing one of two things will happen to a lobster that is protected from its predators: either it will grow so large it will be crushed under its own weight; or it will die from starvation because it can`t take in food fast enough to sustain itself.

@Wendypants
Was the author Ben Bova?
I read a book called Mars by him a few years ago, I believe it was the first in a series. Awesome story.

@Angilion, imagine a massive, giant lobster at the bottom of the ocean... eating whales and kraken to live!
