Video of the Day – 11/13/15 (The Biggest Organism on Earth)

Daily Video — “The Biggest Organism on Earth

From MinuteEarth, this very interesting video tries to answer the question, “What is the biggest living thing on Earth?”  It turns out that the answer is really based on how you define “biggest” and how you define an organism.  I found the answer very surprising and informative!

Lifespans in the Animal Kingdom — Infographic

Lifespans in the Animal Kingdom
