    How Long Animals Live - Interesting Infographic

    I saw this posted on Pheed, thought you folks would enjoy it:



    The type at the bottom says it was compiled from the Field Museum of Natural History and notes that these are just averages, there have been individuals reported to live much longer.

    Interesting way to look at it, huh?

    Interesting, but I thought fox and wolf lived somewhat longer.

    I wonder why "man" isn't on there?

    Probably because it varies so much! US only ranks #42 (but not too much different than the top ten, but this chart always makes me glad I live where I do.

    Statistically speaking, if I lived in Chad, I'd be dead about now!
