My understanding is that the maturation rate of various species doesn't vary in length according to how long that species lives so much as according to how big and complex that species is and how much it has to learn versus how much it can just get from instinct. Then again, big and complex species also tend to live longer, so who knows?On earth, there just isn't any precedent for animal life forms that live more than about 100 years or so.
