5. Koi fish, (226 years old):


Ascarlet koi fish named Hanako, was the longest living fish ever recorded. It died at the age of 226 years & it is still a mystery why a fish would live for so long.

2. Ocean quahog, (507 years old):


Let me tell you that ocean quahog is a species of edible clam, a marine bivalve mollusk that lives a very long life adding one layer to its shell each year. They live for 507 years, the highest reported age among non-colonial species.

1. Antarctic sponge, (1550 years old):


Do you know majority of scientists think that the Antarctic sponge is able to live for centuries due to the extremely low temperatures of the Antarctic Ocean & their slow growth rate. The oldest known specimens are 1,550 years old. What do you say about this post guys?
