New record: World’s oldest animal is 507 years old / "The pattern in Ming’s growth rings does not only provide scientists with an accurate age of the animal; the A. islandica can also provide a unique insight into past climate conditions. By examining the various oxygen isotopes in the growth rings, scientists can determine the sea temperature at the time when the shell came into being."
