About This Quiz

The creatures of the animal kingdom are quite a peculiar lot. And yes, that includes us humans, too! When it comes to how long we all would live, that's where some get more peculiar than others.

For example, have you ever wondered if the insects live longer than bigger animals? Considering that the scary and icky cockroach is practically "un-killable" as a species, have you ever wondered if some of its similar kinds will also withstand the test of time?

How about the wild and free animals of the jungle? Are they also in danger of extinction because of such things as climate change or poaching/hunting? How long can a creature of the wild live on earth, on average? Can you "guesstimate" it?

Or let's start with those closest to our hearts. What about our favorite fur babies who live with us, day in and day out? Have you ever wondered which of their species could last longer with us? Let's hope our faves are in the longevity list, given that we humans can also last for up to 80-100 years old these days!

So if you're curious, hop on in and see which of these animals live longer!
