What does Valentine's Day have to do with lobsters, you ask? Maybe you have heard the old axiom that lobsters -- those romantic devils -- mate for life. Sorry to play Cupid spoiler, but not so it seems, According to the website Mental Floss, "Lobsters actually mate by a weird system of 'serial monogamy.' It’s not exactly a one-night stand, but it's certainly not mating for life. Instead, a bunch of females take turns with a locale’s dominant male, each having a fling that lasts a week or two before moving on and, if they’re not happy with the amount of genetic material he’s provided, seeking a little extra action."
Doesn't sound like male lobsters need to worry about candy and flowers. -- Gerry
