These are not considered as Natural person; unborn, dead man, and lower animals etc.
But unborn, dead man, idiots, corporations, companies, idols, etc. are treated as legal persons in law.

Natural person can live for a limited period. As per general presumption, he cannot live more than 100 years.
Legal person can live more than 100 years even for indefinite period. Like “East India Company” was established in sixteenth century in London, and now still is in existence.

There are no different varieties of natural person.
