Elephants: about a 4% incidence of cancer despite way more body mass and comparable life span to humans. Why?According to this just published JAMA study, elephants have 20 copies of tumor suppressor gene P53. In comparison, humans have just 2, and have cancer rates of about 11-25%. Arguably , humans are exposed to more carcinogenic…  http://www.drkarafitzgerald.com/2015/10/10/potential-mechanisms-for-cancer-resistance-in-elephants-and-comparative-cellular-response-to-dna-damage-in-humans/

The elephant house is a fairly straightforward galvanized steel frame structure with metal clad roof. Internal gantries support the pen divisions and gates and all the internal steelwork and fittings are galvanized. Galvanizing makes sense in the corrosive environment of an animal enclosure. It provides a lifetime guarantee and the sort of maintenance-free solution appropriate for these magnificent animals who themselves have a life span of over 75 years.

Why Do Birds Live Longer Than Turtles?    Conventional wisdom in longevity studies used to be that the life span of a creature was roughly proportional to its body mass and heart rate—the big, slow elephant outlives the quick, small mouse. New research, however, presents a more complicated picture. Bats and birds, for instance, are small but tend to live longer than many larger creatures.
