Video of the Day:The Immortals
Over on the Epic Wildlife youtube channel they have some very cool videos covering loads of different animals. This video in-particular shows some of the longest living animals on the planet well, under the waters mostly. It seems that living in cold water under increased atmospheric pressure (from the pressure of the water) seems to lead to longer life-spans, which is something that has be hypothesized after studying the effects of hyperbolic oxygen treatments. Some of these creatures also show amazing properties of regeneration and the jellyfish goes full Benjamin Button when it gets too old. It will be interesting to see if and what we can learn from these creatures to help improve our understanding of ourselves and how to increase the functional lifespan by maybe a few years.
