What animal takes the longest to reach maturity?

    Most scholars consider modern human maturation to take the longest: sexual maturation is typically twelve to fourtee, and young don’t typically live on their own until eighteen years or later. Elephants can also take up to twenty years to fully mature, though from what I can find this is only in captivity, and sperm whales also have comparable maturation periods.
