    Cockroach. They seem to be able to withstand some serious shit.

    A tortoise is pretty tough too. Long lifespan means they are doing something right.

    i mean in terms of threat from predators and ability to live a full natural life span, whatever it might be, with minimal danger or risk of harm/getting eaten/attacked/killed etc.

    did you think about it? we have no natural weapons: no claws, no angular mouth of canine-type, or shark-type teeth. we have minimal muscular strength (monkeys are stronger than we are) ;we cannot run fast or for more than short sprints, we cannot climb and we have no fur pelts. we can't see distances, nor can we focus and track movement; we have all these weaknesses and yet we can walk pretty much go anywhere with a general security from indiscriminate and random attacks. the only "weapon" we have is our ability to form social groups and to communicate with each other, yet within our territories we are generally immune from daily threats.

    name another living creature that matches those.

    when was the last time you were at risk of being eaten?

    and our natural lifespan is about 20 years.
