I dont get why scientists have to be such cunts with stuff like this, they could have waited for it to die and then found out, it would have been even more impressive.   
Its like when they go on expiditions to document biodiversity, "documenting" biodiversity means going deep into jungle and suffocating whatever you catch to death in plastic bags to send back to a museum, occasionally picking up now rarer species unknown to science.   
   
"But harbinger, if they dont kill what they find how else would they maintain all the species they catch?"   
   
Bitch i have 40 seperate species of exotic pets all doing fine in my bed room, hundreds of individual animals and they are all kept healthy and fed, and im just one guy. Just think of all the good it could do to send the animal back alive to some breeder.   
   
They could breed said new species and sell offspring into the pet trade, releasing straing on wild caught pet stock, whilst also learning about how the damn thing lives rather than what they can scrape from a preserved dead corpse.

I think we're all missing the bigger picture here, everybody's worried about a dead clam, but the real problem is SCIENTIST  completely miscounted by over 100 						*******					 rings

Let's all stop for a moment and ask /why/ the creature lived this long. The answer: It can freaking regenerate its cells. It's not quite the same as getting a cut on your skin, and watching it heal back. The internal organs essentially do not ever age as they just regenerate. That's the bare bones basics, anyway. Point being, if we figured out how to do what the clams do, we would live forever if no accidents happened to us.

whenever our cells replicate we lose bits of DNA... telomeres try to prevent this from damaging us, but over time we do suffer horribly. It's why we age.
