Ancient Animals That Are Older Than Every Single Human On Earth

Nature is full of crazy creatures that defy all logic, and none are more mind-boggling than the animals that can live to be older than humans. Some of the oldest animals on earth have been alive since the time of Charles Darwin, and there are some survivors who may have been around during the time of the last mammoths.

Many of these old animals are deep on the ocean floor, but there are some incredibly resilient animals who can survive hundreds of years on dry land.

The longest living animals can teach us a lot about the aging process, so it’s important to study these rare creatures. Sometimes estimates are exaggerated, but age testing on these animals is very complex and pretty accurate.

There are many ways to test the age of animals, including carbon dating. These ancient animals are believed to be some of the oldest things on earth and, as technologies improve, we will gain a better understanding of them.
