– Greenland shark’s lifespan is undoubtedly impressive. These creatures grow and develop extremely slowly: for them, 150 is still considered an immature age!
– The scientists managed to determine the sharks’ age by using radiocarbon dating.
– After examining all 28 specimens, scientists estimated that while none of the animals in this group was younger than 272 years and the biggest one was 392 years old, some out there could potentially be as old as 512!
– Particular species of the Red Sea Urchin can live for as long as 200 years! You can come across a red sea urchin in the waters of the Pacific Ocean not far from the North American west coast.
– The Galapagos Giant Tortoise can live to a hundred, but the oldest specimen people know about was 152 years old.
– Tuataras develop very slowly and mature only when they reach the age of 30. In the wild, they can live for up to 100 years.
– A famous Japanese Koi Fish reached a ripe old age of 226!
– Bowhead Whales live in the waters of, well, the Arctic! The age of the oldest bowhead whale ever found was 211 years.
– The oldest known sponges are about 1,550 years old.
– The Immortal Jellyfish can move from one stage of its life to the next and then back again!
