Do lobsters have one mate for life?
They definitely do NOT. Lobsters do have a very tender mating ritual, in which the female is very vulnerable after shedding her exoskeleton, but after the deed is done she leaves and they never see each other again, and in fact, the male (usually being the alpha and dominant male in the area) will go on to mate with almost every other female in the area.

The average life expectancy for a lobster in the wild is 45 to 50 years. The scientific name assigned to lobsters is Nephropidae.
Because, as best scientists can tell, lobsters age so gracefully they show no measurable signs of aging: no loss of appetite, no change in metabolism, no loss of reproductive …urge or ability, no decline in strength or health. Lobsters, when they die, seem to die from external causes. They get fished by humans, eaten by seals, wasted by parasites, but they don't seem to die from within. Of course, no one really knows how the average lobster dies. There are no definitive studies.
no...they practice polygamy.
Based on the descriptions of lobsters seen by fishermen during Colonial times, lobsters of that period sometimes lived to be approximately 150 years old. Not surprisingly, whe…n the lobster industry began during the 1800's, the life expectancy of lobsters decreased. As a result, the oldest lobster on record lived to the age of 100 years, and weighed about 43 pounds.
It happens in the summer just as the female lobster sheds its shell. She releases a pheromone that attracts the male lobster to begin the mating process.
Answer It mainly depends on the penguin species, some penguins like Yellow-Eyeds do but Emperors don't.
A human being also known as a homo sapient, sapient. Ans 2. Certainly not; humans decide how many mates to take in a lifetime. There are many animals that take only one ma…te for life, by instinct; unchangeable. Just one example is a queen bee.
A lot of birds mate for life, like barn owls, geese, bald eagles, golden eagles, condors, swans, brolga cranes, sandhill cranes, pigeons, prions (a seabird), red-tailed ha…wks, ospreys, and black vultures. Other animals include gibbon apes, wolves, termites, coyotes, beavers, French angelfish, anglerfish, and prairie voles (a rodent).and girl birds
No they have several mates.
When lobsters hatch from eggs, they emerge as a nauplius (plural nauplii), a larval life stage. They will then molt into a zoea, the second larval life stage. There are three …zoeal life stages. All of these life stages are planktonic. That is, the tiny young lobster spends all his time in the water column near the surface and is not capable of any purposeful swimming. They will then molt into the fifth life stage, a megalopa, which is a transitional stage that prepares the lobster for life on the sea bottom. This might take up to 20 days. After he settles on the bottom, he is pretty much a small version of an adult lobster, with a total length of only about an inch. He will normally take about 6-8 years to get up to a pound, which is the normal size of lobster you will see in the market. But he is sexually mature and capable of reproducing within 4 or 5 years. At this time, he will mate with a female lobster, and the whole cycle begins again.
Why is life about finding a mate. Can you just go through your life without one and not be depressed?
Life is not hard for any reason,life maybe depressing but truthly life can be amazing! and life isn't all about being with someone and have someone in your life Life is no…t all about love so you don't need a special someone in your life. And life and isn't impossible to go live on by you self is way much better then always being depressed! please truths me on this because i been with a guy for awhile and it's not all that well.
Ghetto will re mate if they are away from there partner to long or if he/she dies
Before the female lobster starts molting, she goes near a male's den and releases her scent in a stream of urine. When he emerges from his den, the two spar briefly, then …the female places her claws on his head to let him know she is ready to molt and mate.
