Top 10 Longest Living Animals On Eart

Top 10 Longest Living Animals On Eart

How often do we humans think that our life is fleeting? What can we say about animals, many of them live much less than us, and we often have to worry about the loss of our beloved four-legged friend. However, there are other animals in nature that can live much longer than humans. Below is a ranking of the longest-living animals on earth:

How often do we humans think that our life is fleeting? What can we say about animals, many of them live much less than us, and we often have to worry about the loss of our beloved four-legged friend. However, there are other animals in nature that can live much longer than humans. Below is a ranking of the longest-living animals on earth:

Medusa Turritopsis Nutricula

Topping this rating is a jellyfish called Turritopsis Nutricula. This very small jellyfish (about 5 mm in diameter) hides the most fantastic riddle over which many scientists of the earth are fighting – the secret of immortality! After reproduction, this jellyfish settles to the bottom and turns into polyps, that is, roughly speaking, starts its life cycle anew.

Sponges

These simplest invertebrates also inhabit the body of water. In cold waters, where their metabolism slows down, sponge growth can occur at a rate of 0.2 mm per year. Accordingly, the age of such a 2-meter sponge will be equal to 10,000 years!

Coral ( Colpophyllia Natans) or coral polyps

Coral polyps generally do not live long. When a polyp dies, another grows on it. However, this type of coral is an exception. Its life span reaches 400 years.

A bivalve mollusc called Guidak

This mollusk is famous as one of the longest-living animals: the average life span of guidaks is about 150 years. Possible reasons for such longevity include the slowed metabolism of these mollusks and the almost complete absence of enemies.

Red sea ​​urchin

Red sea urchins live up to 200 years. These animals are able to restore lost thorns.

Elephant turtle (Galapagos turtle)

The elephant turtle lives in the Galapagos Islands. This is the largest of all modern turtles: its huge shell reaches 110 cm in length and 60 cm in height. The weight of adult specimens is about 100 kg, while individual giants can weigh 400 kg. In the wild, these turtles can live for over 100 years.

The Tuatara

Hatteria is the only modern representative of the ancient order of Beakheads. These reptiles appeared about 200 million years ago and have remained practically unchanged since that time; they can be called real “living fossils”. Slow metabolism and slow life processes are another feature of her biology. Because of this, it grows and develops very slowly. Raches sexual maturity only by the age of 15-20, and its life expectancy is about 100 years.

Koi Carps

Koi carps are decorative domesticated subspecies of common carp (Cyprinus carpio). Koi are capable of living for several decades, and some Koi have lived up to 200 years.

Bowhead whale , or polar whale

The average life expectancy is about 40 years. However, as a result of research, it was found that some males lived up to 100-200 years. It has also been established that the age of the longest-lived shark of the species Somniosus microcephalus can range from 200 to 500 years. Nevertheless, the bowhead whale can rightfully bear the title of the longest-living mammal.

Birds

The life of certain bird species in terms of its duration can compete with the life of a person.

As we can see from our observations, not all animals live less than humans. Many animals will also outlive us! We can only envy them, learn from them the skill of longevity and try to follow their example.
