Neptune grass claims title of oldest living organism




40 patches of Neptune grass in the Mediterranean represent the oldest living organisms in the world-- each of these patches asexually reproduced from a specimen over 12,000 years old, most likely over 100,000 years old, and possibly even as old as 200,000 years!
