How it is lions have such strong health due to all the muscles they have, but only live 20 years?

for most animals in the wild, their life expectancies are shorter. i would guess that it would have to do with their bodies having to function at peak performance 24/7 to survive. im sure it drastically speeds up the deterioration process of their cell health, which would lead to more rapid death. also, statistically, when youre out in the wild surviving, your life expectancy goes way down. you could live for a good 14 years and get killed by something bigger than you.

That is their lifespan. It's actually long compared to most species.

***** The smaller the animal the less their lifespan is usually. 20 years, if that's correct, is pretty good! :) *****

nice idea. Except don't the tortoises live longer than us? and they are pretty small. lol

It has been shown that their cellular damage and repair is at a much slower rate. That's why they can live to be 100
