Photogallery: World’s Oldest Living Things

Ecorazzi has a super cool gallery of some of the world’s oldest living plants.

The plant above is the Welwitschia Mirabilis. This plant is estimated to be between 1500 and 2000 years old. The Welwitschia Mirabilis are considered to be “living fossils.” They have a short woody trunk and just two leaves that grow continuously from the trunk. Amazing! Check out the gallery link above for the complete collection of images.
