Want to live to be 200?

If you want to live longer, you might follow the example of the Greenland shark. A new study in Science reported on 28 Greenland sharks that are 200 years or older, making them the planet’s longest-lived vertebrate.

These sharks don’t eat every day. In fact, they might just have a big meal once or twice a year, says Julius Nielsen of Denmark’s University of Copenhagen.

They’re big. Females can measure 15 feet, which means they’re big enough to scare off predators.

They’re slow. They putter along at less than half a mile an hour.

Well, this shark might not be the best role model. According to an article we read in the August 12, 2016, issue of USA Today, they’re also homely and dim-witted.
