MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Which animal has the longest lifespan?

The animal with the longest lifespan isn’t one that you might think. It’s actually a species of clam called the ocean quahog (fans of Family Guy are cheering right now). They are known to live until about 400 years old!

You can find them all the way up and down the east coast from Canada to Florida. There are a lot of them around here in the Rhode Island and Connecticut area. So if you’re eating a delicious stuffed Quahog this summer just know that thing might be hundred of years old.
