Elephant Trivia: How old do they go?

Posted by King Thibaw on Tuesday, November 3, 2009

In honor of getting one year older, I am adding some Elephant-age trivia:

  • Elephants live an average of 70 years, but some go into the 80′s.
  • According to the NY Times;  Lin Wang, originally from Myanmar, died at the age of 86. They reported that this was the oldest elephant as of 2003.
  • There is a report out of Taiwan that there was mail elephant, Plai Aek, who at 89 is thought to be the oldest elephant father in the world…
  • There are ancient relatives of the modern elephant that date back 60 Million years.

That’s Google’s story and I’m sticken to it…
