    Default Animals that just don't die in JY universe

    As we know that, in JY's universe, certain animals live longer than they are supposed to live.

    For example, Guo Jing found his red horse when he was 17 years old. Yet, until the very end ROCH, Red horse did not die. It's roughly more than forty years of time. How long usually does a horse live. Also his White Eagles lived more than 40 years and met unfortinate end.

    There are other animals like Yang Guo's undying Divine Condor and ZWJ's White gorilla which lived more than 90 years.

    Are there any other animals that just don't die?

    Apparently horses can live into their forties: http://www.petplace.com/horses/the-h...pan/page2.aspx

    The little Red Horse has good genetics so this is possible. However, I doubt it would be capable of the same feats of speed and endurance as displayed in its youth.

    Horses can typically live to be over 30 years old and it's not impossible for one to live to be even older. And GJ's Little Red Horse was a special animal, which makes it seem less strange that it lived so long.

    Some birds, like parrots and macaws, can live to be 60 years old. But again the Divine Eagle is a special case. No one even knows what kind of bird it really is (but it's probably not a condor since those are from South America, not China).

    Gorillas can live almost as long as people. Once again, though, the white gorilla isn't an ordinary animal.

    How about people that don't seem to die.

    In Gu Long universe, there is an individual who is 200 years old, who is perfectly healthy and can fight like a pro.
    忽见柳荫下两个小孩子在哀哀痛哭,瞧模样正是武敦儒、武修文兄弟。郭芙大声叫道:「喂,你们在干甚麽?」武 修文回头见是郭芙,哭道:「我们在哭,你不见麽?」

    This is a plea to whom ever is in-charge of wuxiapedia to update the translations into it (or else start trying to get permission to put the content from the translators/editors).

    Agree, but in this case, there's next to zero information about this novel in English, so even if you knew the translated English title, it wouldn't do you any good.

    Well in JY's universe there are people with the capability to live forever. The Xiao Yao Sect in DGSD knew the skill that would make you techically immortal by not aging as long as you continue to practice the skill every 30 years. But all the elders who knew the skill died before passing it on and 3rd edition have Wang Yuyan trying to recreate it but failing and going back to her insane cousin (i dont know why...)

    If you believe the commentary in ROCH, XLN had the capability to never age if she kept all not having emotions. Her sect believe that emotion is the cause of aging and XLN still look like her teens even after the 16 years.

    I think they may SEEM to be young on the outside. They are still aging in the inside and will die eventually.
