The Shrimps Shall Inherit the Earth
Smaller youths live longer
Abstract: A new report confirms that peewees outlast titans--among rodents, at least. Whereas most studies assess size at one time point or life stage, the new one tracks the rodents' weight month by month from birth to death. As a result, the work offers the first hint that body weight at an early age correlates with an animal's life expectancy.
