How Long On Earth? Life Spans of Animals, Humans, Insects, Plants, and Microorganisms (Knowledge Cards®)
A stroke of bad karma might make you a cockroach, but the news wouldn’t be all bad: you’d only have to scuttle for 16 months. Humans are among the longest-lived animals; cockroaches don’t live nearly so long as tarantulas or scorpions. If your karma went the other way, you might inhabit the body of a whale: the bowhead can live more than 200 years, a generous span if you enjoy plankton. This deck of 48 quiz cards conveys far more than the life spans of the great and the small, shedding light on why some creatures live longer than others, how stem cells might be used to extend human life span, and whether butterflies live longer in cages or meadows.
