What Animals are Living Longer than Human?

As you might know that France, Jeanne Calment was the longest human ever lived on earth. She reached 122 years and 164 days old (1875 to 1997).

The record said the average of longest people lifespan is about 110 years. However, people in many developing countries live average is 70 years and even lower in certain countries.

How about with animals? At least, there are 4 kinds of animals live longer than human:
- Galapagos giant tortoise
- Bowhead whales
- Greenland shark
- Ocean quahog

Galapagos giant tortoise (Chelonoidis nigra) extends to 152 years old, live in the Galapagos island.

Charles Darwin mentioned the tortoise and the island in his famous theory of evolution. The tortoise is called giant because its weight around 919 pound (417 kg). Much bigger than other tortoises.

The second longest lifespan animal is Bowhead whale (Balaena mysticetus). This marine mammal lifespan is 200 years.

They are found in arctic ocean with size of 100 ton weight and 18 m length. Recorded as the fifth biggest mammal in the ocean.

Greenland shark (Somniosus microcephalus) age is about the same age with Bowhead whale, 200 years old.

The one reason is that the shark slows growth of 1 cm per year and reach maturity at 100 years old.

Clam, ocean quahog (Arctica islandica) is considered as the longest lifespan animal on the earth. It reached 507 years old.

Finally, how old you wish to live?
