Default This deep-sea creature could be the world’s oldest living animal

This deep-sea creature could be the world’s oldest living animal


Deep in the waters off the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands lurks a 3.5-metre-long behemoth – the world’s largest known sponge that could be hundreds, if not thousands, of years old.

Sponges are some of the simplest and most ancient of animals, though they don’t look like animals as we usually know them.
