    Why are people so obsessed with increasing mammal lifespans instead of further enhancing already long lived animals? Is it literally just because "muh mammals"?

      Opossums are weirdly short lived for their size/metabolic rate. It feels unfair to them.

    There is an island population of possums with longer than average lifespans. These possums evolved on the island without natural predators and developed longer lifespans.

        Senescence is slightly different because it's a statistical measure of mortality rates.

        What

        Senescence is slightly different because it's a statistical measure of mortality rates.

        said and also it takes into account other factors like senescent cells. Aging covers senescence but also things like ontogeny/ontogenic processes.
