METHUSELAH TREE

An ancient 4,800-year-old Great Basin Bristlecone Pine, the Methuselah Tree grows high in the White Mountains of eastern California.

Named, obviously, after the Biblical figure that lived for 969 years, the Methuselah Tree grows in the Methuselah Grove, which is in Inyo National Forest’s “Forest of Ancients,” where it is surrounded by other ancient trees. The exact location of the tree, though, is kept secret to protect it against vandalism.

When Edmund Schulman and Tom Harlan took samples from the famous tree in 1957, they discovered it was 4,789 years old. It is estimated that the tree germinated in 2832 BCE, making Methuselah the oldest known living tree and non-clonal organism in the entire world. A germination date of 2832 BCE makes Methuselah older even than the Egyptian Pyramids. It has just a bit longer to hold old until it is older than Prometheus, another bristlecone specimen that was 4,844 years old when accidentally destroyed in 1964.

Upon visiting the tree, Robert Mohlenbrock, a professor of botany at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, thought “that any organism that lived longer than the norm had to have optimal conditions going for it … that would mean moderate temperatures, shelter from extreme weather, and plenty of moisture and nutrients.” He was wrong. Methuselah lives in a nasty place - for a tree. There are just patches of soil at the tree’s extreme elevation and fierce winds blow.

My oldest can’t wait to go to college next year.

Rest in Peace Pusuke
(This is the most?in depth article?I could find)?
UTSUNOMIYA, Japan - The world’s oldest dog has died in Sakura, Japan, at the age of 26 years, eight months - equivalent to 125 human years - his owner said.
Pusuke, certified by Guinness World Records as the world’s oldest living dog last year, died Monday at his home, owner Yumiko Shinohara said. Pusuke is believed to have died of old age.
The dog was born at the home of one of Shinohara’s relatives in March 1985 and was registered as a pet on April 1 that year.
In 2008, he suffered serious injuries after being hit by a car. A veterinarian told Shinohara it would be difficult to save Pusuke’s life, but the dog underwent successful surgery.
In December 2010, Pusuke was certified by Guinness World Records as the world’s oldest living dog, breaking the previous longevity record of 21 years, three months.
According to Shinohara, Pusuke’s physical condition took a sudden turn for the worse Monday. The dog did not eat breakfast, which had never happened before, and died quietly at about 1:30 p.m., surrounded by Shinohara and her family.
Shinohara, 42, said Pusuke looked fine and normal until the previous day.
“I was with Pusuke for 26 years and I felt as if he was my child. I thank him for living so long with me,” Shinohara said.
