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…
