The world's oldest living organism
Scientists have discovered that the Tasmanian plant King Lomita is the oldest living organism. These plants have existed for at least 100,000 years.
A group of Australian and European scientists took DNA samples of a giant seagrass called P. Oceanica from 40 underwater beds across a span of 3,500km. The test showed that the plants ranged from 12,000 years old to 100,000 years old.
These plants grow rather slow, but can adapt to environmental changes.
