Scientists in the United States have captured a 112-year-old buffalo fish that quadruples the age at which the average life expectancy is established for their peers, reports Science Alert.

These specialists determined the duration of this animal’s life by the state of the otoliths in its ears, the calcium carbonate structures that help it maintain its stability.

Until recently it was believed that the ‘Ictiobus cyprinellus’, which can reach more than a meter long and weigh about 18 kilograms, lived an average of 26 years after studying 386 specimens of that species.
