Hail to the biodiversity of earth!  The cockroach! Every where and every when.
For large animals I am impressed with crocodilians as for longevity. Hundreds of millions of years. Survived ice ages even. We have been speciated for less than three or five hundred thousand years and I would venture to say our future is somewhat doubtful already. Crocodilians and sharks are efficient at what they do. Thermodynamics and entropy reward efficiency. We are the opposite of that.

I think their ability to survive in case of any possible nuclear disaster is more than humans'. :)

From that point mentioned above it can be said their survival capacity is superior than us? Sure it depends not on their intelligence. Intelligence is our strategy to survive.

True, but we have the game-breaking meta build of intelligence, socialization, and tool use.  A complete game-changer.  Incredible inefficiency as the trade-off for virtually limitless potential.  The downside of being able to do whatever you want is that you can do whatever you want - including destroying your own resources.
