The life spans of animals has a far wider range than you would guess. Some animals have a relatively short life span and only live for a year. While other animals can live for hundreds of year, a select few can even live for thousands of years, but one animal is the reigning champ of life spans and is biologically immortal.
That animal is aptly named the immortal jellyfish, which is able to sexually mature and then revert back to a sexually immature version of itself, woah! Explore the life spans of 50 common animals with this infographic and see how your own average life span compares to that of a tiger, a flamingo, or even a sea urchin. You may be surprised to see that a large animal like an elephant can live for 50 years, or that something small like the house mouse only lives for a year. What other animals were you surprised to see with such a long, or short, life span?
