From the Upcoming ueue, submitted by bmnkystar.
The folks at Did You Know? have compiled a long list of average life expectancies of many, many animals. Including everything from ants (1-3yrs) to humans (70-80yrs) to the Galapagos land tortoise (193yrs!) Get ready to spend some time going through the list, with some surprising lifespans!
Perhaps the list should have focused on maximums or realistic life expectancies in the wild.
Also, the figure for the Galapagos land tortoise can't possibly be accurate if it's an average considering that the majority of hatchlings don't even make it past infancy. These wouldn't be considered outliers either considering that most hatchlings will meet this fate (poor babies). The same goes with many of the species mentioned.
Is it midnight 2011 or midnight 2012?
I need to know because I have some home projects I've been procrastinating.
2012 - mark your calendars.
Seriously, I'm retarded when it comes to math, and I noticed this.
Neat-O - when you post stuff like this, it makes you look stupid, too.
Even more ridiculous. How about the purported 102 year average of the swan?
well, rather than 102 you ought to think seven. Yes, seven years
the original article is a little bit "fact light" eh?
