•The Neptune Grass "Posidonia oceanica" or Mediterranean tapeweed is the oldest living thing on planet earth superseding the 43,000 year-old Tasmanian Plant.

These patches of seagrass was between 12,000 and 200,000 years old and was most likely to be at least 100,000 years old beating the current holder of the title “oldest living thing,” which is the Tasmanian plant. It spans almost 10 miles and weighs more than 6,000 tons.
