Some Creatures Have DNA That Makes Them Virtually Immortal
In the aging process DNA is usually subject to entropy. Meaning over time the cells become a little weaker and deteriorate. It was discovered that in some animals their DNA actually appears not to break down over time. Many Tortoises, Lobster and some Fish appear to be virtually immortal. The oldest Aldabra Giant Tortoise named Adwaita lived to be 255 years old! Although they do not appear to die of old age they are still subject to injury and diseases.
