 How Long Animals Live: The Life Spans of 50 Animals infographic

How long live animals? We explained the life cycle of animals from rats to humans to sharks, demonstrating how the lifespan of animals varies from a few years to 500 years or more! See where you are sitting on our 50 animal life spans list.

 The species with the longest life span is biologically immortal: Turritopsis dohrnii, also called the "immortal jellyfish." Throughout its evolution, this tiny organism will effectively hit the reset button, maturing sexually and then reverting to a sexually immature version of itself in a process called transdifferentiation, or the practice of transforming adult cells into another tissue form.

As researchers are focusing on gene therapy for humans, this method has been having some intense analysis. (Who knows? Perhaps one day human beings will figure out how to transdifferentiate cells like those jellyfish do.) While it may not be a fixed number of years, it is clear that the eternal jellyfish has the longest life span of any species.
