BOSTON - A 50-ton bowhead whalte caught off the Alaskan coast last month had a weapon fragment embedded in its neck that showed it survived a similar hunt — more than a century ago.
Calculating a whale’s age can be difficult, and is usually gauged by amino acids in the eye lenses. It’s rare to find one that has lived more than a century, but experts say the oldest were close to 200 years old.
200 years, damn. I never knew they could live anywhere near that long.

Awwhh poor little guy He's been swimming around all that time with it in him. I couldn't have told ya that today but thought it was so cool when growing up we had some kinda book that converted all the animal ages in to people years and told ya how long they lived. Remembered something about whales and not sure but think turtles lived a long time (could be completely wrong on that, though) We used to compare all our pets ages to people years. lol
