1. Quahog (marine clam) 200 years. These clams in the native to the eastern shores of North America. In order to get these clams you need to dig them up in the mud becuase they hide in the mude to protect themselves form predator!

    Actually, the oldest quahog clam that has so far been found was over 400 years old. Also, bowhead whales may live to be over 200 years old and blue whales can live to be over 100 (though rare)…Of course, the oldest human (so far) was only 123 when she died; quite young by comparison. :-)
