Kristy, they pack about 12 years of life into each one calendar year,
and like any other mammals they are more prone to certain health
problems during set periods of life, especially their older years.
It's not that they are less healthy as much as that they just fit
life's experiences into fewer days, and we see it from our human
temporal perspective.
