An immortal jellyfish?

FeaturedAn immortal jellyfish?

It seems so, the Turritopsis dohrnii can revert from adult state toward something similar to the childhood in a constant manner, giving chance for being called a sort of immortality. This very rare phenomenon from Nature shows that conceptually it's possible, like some other species that can revive after being completely frozen.

The Turritopsis dohrnii is a relatively small jellyfish and then it has considerable problems to achieve that immortality in the medium, although perhaps some could reach thousands of years living, passing through time.

It's well documented that the human doesn't have near probabilities of considerably surpassing 122 years, the current lifespan record, hosted by a female called Jeanne Calment that with a hundred years still rode the bicycle, or practiced fencing with 85.
