Lobsters are immortal: a science birthday card

Lobster birthday card: frontIt was the brilliance of my colleague, scientist Katherine Theiss-Nyland,  and her lobster knowledge that lead to my first science themed birthday greetings card.

Adorned with hand drawn lobsters, the cover of the card reads:

“Lobsters are immortal. Lobsters show no signs of ageing, and get more fertile as they get older. There is no evidence that lobsters die from anything except external causes.”

And the inside:

“It’s a shame you aren’t a lobster. Happy Birthday.”

Find out more through this brilliant podcast by NPR on The Long and Happy Lives of Lobsters featuring interviews with lobster specialists from Boston University.

I have a limited number in stock at the moment available through my Etsy shop: We are stardust.
