Default the 400 year old shark.

I came across this article, which I though was interesting as it the first time I've actually seen a serious proposal for any animal to have a lifespan in the multiple century range. Their is some doubt as to the exact age, and indeed some doubt about the validity of the method, but even the low end of their estimate is still 270 years.

I've shared it here as I think it makes the whole "long vlani lifespans" thing somewhat more plausible.

out of interest, was their ever an explanation as to why pureblood vlani have such long lifespans?.
