Clam, 405, Is The Oldest Animal, And Is Called ‘Ming’

A clam aged 405 years old is the world’s oldest animal, and his name is Ming! Unfortunately, by the time its true age had been established Ming was already dead.

According to the scientist, 405 lines on the clam’s shell equals 405 years. The clam has surpassed all other venerable animal species such as the Galapagos tortoise (the oldest known specimen of which lived for 176 years) and the bowhead whale (130 years).

With such discovery, will scientists be able to find out the secret of longevity? Living in deep water? Or does the ecosystem around us actually affect our ageing?

An Asshole Elephant Kills A Female Elephant

The world’s largest elephant in captivity crushes a female elephant from his herd.

The tragic incident of one elephant killing a member of his herd was captured by an amateur cameraman visiting the Ramat Gan Safar Zoo, Israel.

Using his trunk, tusks and huge bulk, Yossi, a 7-ton African elephant crushed the female elephant, Atari, against a wall and struck her with his tusks.

Yossi will remain in isolation until experts decide on how he is to be treated.

Atari was laid to rest at the zoo’s animal cemetery.
