A clam found off the coast of Iceland is thought to be the longest-lived animal discovered to date. The clam is aged between 405 and 410 years. Its age was calculated by counting the rings on its shell. Previously the longest-lived animal was another clam that was 374 years old.

Isn't it ironic that they had to kill the clam to determine its age, or what?

Yes I thought that myself. It makes you wonder how long they live when undisturbed by people.
