World’s oldest living land animal, Jonathan, turns 191 years old

Jonathan, the world’s oldest living land animal, is now 191 years old.

He is believed to have been born c. 1832, based on the fact that he was fully mature (and hence at least 50 years old) when he was brought from the Seychelles to the island of St Helena in 1882.

His age is a conservative estimate, meaning he is probably even older than we think.

Jonathan is a Seychelles giant tortoise (Aldabrachelys gigantea hololissa) and has far surpassed his species’ average life expectancy of 150 years.
