    Backward-aging jellyfish
    A tiny variety of jellyfish known as Turritopsis doohmii, or more commonly, the immortal jellyfish, has found a way to cheat death by actually reversing its aging process, according to Please or Register to view links. If the jellyfish is injured or sick, it returns to its polyp stage over a three-day period, transforming its cells into a younger state that will eventually grow into adulthood all over again.

    Ever-growing lobsters
    There is a debate among the scientific community whether these red ocean dwellers are biologically immortal; a common cause of death is disease, not old age, and unlike other animals, lobsters grow and reproduce until they die. One lobster captured off the coast of Newfoundland was estimated to be 140 years old, but most males survive into their early 30s while females live an average of 54 years, according to Please or Register to view links. Fun fact: The bigger the lobster, the older it is.

    Regenerating flatworms
    These creepy crawlers, also known as planarian worms, are famous for their regeneration abilities, where a worm cut across or lengthwise can form two separate worms. This apparently limitless regeneration also applies to aging and damaged tissue, allowing the worms to cheat death indefinitely, according to a Please or Register to view links at the University of Nottingham.

    Tough whales
    Though not technically immortal, the bowhead whale is the oldest living mammal. According to Please or Register to view links, several species of whales have been known to live for more than 70 years, though in the 1990s scientists discovered scars on the massive animals that had been made by weapons from the 1800s. The oldest known bowhead lived to be 211 years old.
