Bad luck lobster.
Biologically immortal.
One of the most delicious animals.

I think you're confusing jellyfish with crustacea

Nope. Lobster telomerase never shortens. In fact it lengthens as they age.
The older they get, the more fertile they get as well.
Little bastards get stronger the longer we let them live.

telomerase is an enzyme, i think you meant telomeres which are the noncoding dna sequences at the polar ends of DNA strands

Does this mean that we got gigantic lobsters at the bottom of the ocean lead by a gigantic lobster king, just waiting to kill us?

Can you confirm it by linking a legit article though?
Not saying you're lying, but you know...It's the internet.

Look it up on google. There's plenty of articles about lobster and possible immortality. They didn't prove it, but it is supported by many evidences.
