Why do animals have such different lifespans? - Joao Pedro de. Why aging rates vary immensely across species is one of the greatest mysteries in biology.

While humans are a relatively long-lived species, some animals like mice age 20-30 times faster than us and live only up to 3-4 years. In contrast, some mammals like the bowhead whale are thought to live over 200 years. In the amazing biodiversity of our planet, we can find diverse and fascinating forms of aging. For more details on how animals age, and how some seem to avoid aging, see: Some Animals Age, Others May Not. Why do different species age at different paces? In addition, extreme long-lived animals like mole-rats and whales can serve as inspiration for biomedical research. You can also check out the TEDx talk “Slowing down aging” deals with studying the genetics of long-lived species and future medical applications. Hashem Al-Ghaili - What Happens to Your Body after Death. Amazing - Beautiful Nature. Scientists Have Discovered Over 200 New Species In 2018, And Here Are Some Of Our Favorites.

Researchers at the California Academy of Sciences and their international collaborators have discovered 229 new species of plants and animals this year.

Scientists Have Discovered Over 200 New Species In 2018, And Here Are Some Of Our Favorites

The list of animal discoveries includes a new frog, a new snake, and a new seahorse, as well as two tardigrades, three sharks, four eels, seven spiders, 19 fishes (including a neon-colored one), 28 ants, 34 sea slugs, and a whopping 120 wasps. On the plant side, there are seven new flowering plants, one liverwort, and one moss. The wasps, all members of the Pison genus, come from Australia and New Guinea and are notorious thanks to their rather grim life cycles. The female wasps inject venom into spiders to paralyze them. They then drag the poor arachnid into their nest and lay eggs on top of it. The new seahorse is called the Japan pig seahorse and is roughly the size of a jelly bean.

Researchers have also discovered a new coral snake from an island in the Philippines. Hashem Al-Ghaili - Take a look at these fascinating deep sea creatures.
