In a tiny fishing village known as Brantevik, an eel named Ale lived for an estimated 155 years. The eel which dwelled in a well was originally put in there to keep flies out. The death was first broken to the world on Friday and not surprisingly people are mourning him as he seems to have been fairly well-known in Sweden.

According to the article, Ale has been frozen so experts can determine what made him live so long.

RIP Ale, my slithery buddy.

I want some of that water! Unless it tastes like eel.

So he lived that long, and the other one is 110, yet they usually only live 7 years?

Not only would I want him examined, but the well also. Wish the story told about the human family members. Where they long lived?

Nice find!

The good news is that scientists have discovered the secret to living to 155. The bad news is it involves living the bottom of a well.

And eating only flies. Clearly, this is the eel version of an extremely ascetic lifestyle.
