The crow is an amazing bird, which is distinguished not only by its developed intellect, but also by its high lifespan. How many years the crows live in nature - is known. The average lifespan of a crow is 20 years. It is also known how many crows live with a man. The house raven lives for 40-50 years, often more. Strangely enough, it is not known exactly how long the longest living crow lived with a man. It happens that the crows go from fathers to sons, live for 100 years. There is also the case when the raven lived for 210 years, going from father to son, but this case is not documented, so you cannot recognize it as an official record.

Despite the association with death, the crow already in the Middle Ages found a place among people as a pet. The bird was easily tamed at an early age and remained loyal to the host for a long life. In addition, the raven was attractive for its intelligence, ability to reproduce human speech and elegance. The bird occupies a significant place in the culture of different nations of the world, in mythology. In heraldry, the raven became a symbol of foresight, wisdom, and longevity.
