"Turritopsis nutricula is the world’s only immortal animal, a tiny jellyfish only 4-5 mm in length. When the jellyfish reaches sexual maturity it transforms its old cells into new ones through the process called transdifferentiation. By renewing the cells continuously, the jellyfish stays young forever. It dies only when it gets killed or eaten by other animals. As of today, this jellyfish is the only known animal on Earth capable of reversing the aging process."

Screw Nivea and those anti-wrinkle creams. This thing actually works.
