  1. Just like lobsters, cool. They don’t even have to moult their shell, which is what stops lobsters from living forever.

    My favorite is still Tardigrades (water bears). They can survive in outer space by putting their body into dehydrated stasis. When they start to rehydrate and come back to life, they will take in genetic information from the environment and use it to adapt their genetics in real time.

  2. My mother in law found one when it was a baby in November, she feared it wouldn’t survive the winter so she brought it in as a pet, that was like 9 years ago. She had no idea what it’s species was or its longevity.

  3. They are struggling to thrive because of how long it takes them to reach sexual maturity, and humans goal to build something everywhere they can as fast as they can. I used to trap them for a couple projects, one being a genetic survey. Those were fun summers though!
