Is this Crabzilla?

Crabs have to molt to grow. At some point they have two exoskeletons. Gravity would crush their "innards" for lack of a better term, for that soup they are on the inside.

"giant" lobsters die at a certain stage, when there are two exoskeletons of large enough magnitude, it crushes the inside.

I have no facts to back this up, other than what I recall from high school science class, but it sounds logical.

The more oxygen contained within this planets atmosphere (in the air) equals the larger the flora and fauna of earths biosphere will grow? meaning like the massive prehistoric dinosaurs ect ect?

Then we would all become huge, no?

I guess we are huge...Compared to ants...And I guess ants are huge...Compared to dust mites...Ect ect ect (*-*)

Quote: Recently, USGS scientists have used a gas QMS to determine the oxygen level of ancient samples of Earth's atmosphere from a most unlikely place - amber.

Minute bubbles of ancient air trapped by successive flows of tree resin during the life of the tree are preserved in the amber.

Analyses of the gases in these bubbles show that the Earth's atmosphere, 67 million years ago, contained nearly 35 percent oxygen compared to present levels of 21 percent.

The consequences of an elevated oxygen level during Cretaceous time are speculative. Did the higher oxygen support the now extinct dinosaurs?

Their demise was gradual in the transition from late Cretaceous to early Tertiary times, as was the decrease in oxygen content of the atmosphere.
