182 Years Old Giant Turtle

Although it may not be as fast as it used to be, 182 years old Jonathan, the giant tortoise,  is still going strong. He may be the oldest living turtle, or even living land animal, in the world.

It is thought that Jonathan was taken to the island of St. Helena in 1882. A photo from 1902 shows his adult size.
It can take 50 years for a giant tortoise to reach its adult size, meaning that he could have been born in 1832!
