Is there an animal that can live forever?


2 Answers

There is a species of jellyfish called Turritopsis dohrnii. They are considered biologically immortal. When they become harmed or ill, they can revert back to the polyp stage and grow up again. Their DNA can theoretically last forever. Although, with enough damage, even they can suffer death.

Just one is currently known: the jellyfish species turritopsis dohrnii. This species is the only known example in the animal kingdom that can revert to a sexually immature juvenile stage after having previously reached sexual maturity.
