My daughter always gets me! Here's 2days question. What is the longest living thing on earth?
Destin, Florida, USA
Sequoia trees. Supposedly there are some that are a thousand years old.
Hmm,,turtles and crocs sometimes live to be 100,not sure of actual answer tho
Some clams live 400-500 yrs. Some Tortoises live ~ 150 yrs.
Offhand I'd guess redwoods, but I could imagine it being some other plant.
Good question from your daughter. Re: longest living thing > size or time?
