Hello there mylotters... I got shocked when i saw this news in yahoo. The scientists discovered a jellyfish known as turritopsis nutricula which may be considered that maybe the only animal who wont die of age. And they said these species are growing in number already. It is said they can regenerate their own selves and they can go back from their starting stage which is a polyp. I wonder if those kind of cells will be transferred to human beings..lol So, what do you think about this news? Have a nice day to all!

This could be the key to immortality. I have yet to hear a story about an animal who can regenerate itself from where it began. The most common is the hibernation which is the ability for our system to go slower but not something that would totally start from stage one.

Wow thats really something. If these creatures couldnt die with ages. Then these might have been even around in ancient times. Probably even at the age of the dinosaurs. I guess some species just really need to evolve to last and evade extinction. Like this one probably has.
