Clam — 400 Years Old — Found In Icelandic Waters

ScienceDaily (2007-10-29) — A clam dredged from Icelandic waters had lived for 400 years. Is this the longest-lived animal known to science? Can you imagine living for four centuries? Scientists believe they have found an animal which did just that, a quahog clam, Arctica islandica, which was living and growing on the seabed in the cold waters off the north coast of Iceland for around 400 years.
