Spiny Questions

Q : Is it true that lobsters can grow to over 1 meter?
A: Yes! In their life spiny lobsters do not stop growing and in this way old lobsters can grow to over 1 meter and weigh 12 kilo. Can you imagine that?!

Q: What is the difference between true lobsters and spiny lobsters?
A: Spiny lobsters can be distinguished from true lobsters by their very long spiny antennae, and by the lack of claws. True lobsters have much smaller antennae and they have large claws.

Q: Did you know spiny lobsters can make sound?
A: Potential predators may be deterred from eating spiny lobsters by a loud sound made by the antennae of the spiny lobsters rubbing against a part of the exoskeleton. It is made in the same way as a violin string creates sound. Isnít that interesting!

Live and let live
