Beskrivelse

Guppies and water fleas live only days or weeks, but their mortality increases sharply with age, as is the case in longer-lived animals such as humans. But other animals—such as the hermit crab, the red abalone and the hydra, a microscopic freshwater animal that can live centuries—buck that trend, enjoying near constant levels of fertility and mortality.
