When it comes to living a long life, animals of the ocean do it best. Nearly every animal on the list finds its home in the ocean, including the species with the greatest longevity in the known world, the Ocean Quahog. Living the equivalent of about 6 human lifespans, the Quahog is a type of clam with an extremely low rate of growth and reproduction.
