Lifespans in the Animal Kingdom — Infographic

Lifespans in the Animal Kingdom

Today’s infographic is a great summary of the variety of life we see not only in the species and creatures in the world, but also the variety of  their lives.  It’s very interesting to see lifespans laid out in this way, and to see that humans really are essentially on the high end of the middle of the pack.  I am sure, however, as medicine and care advances we will see ourselves moving into the high end of lifespans.  Would you care to be like the immortal jellyfish though?  [VIA]
