A 189 years old grand tortoise is the oldest known overland creature in the world.
Humans are the longest living creatures on earth. It may seem suspicious, but turtles can live for centuries. Today we will introduce you to a turtle that is about 2 centuries old.
Take a look at Jonathan, the 189 year old giant tortoise, which is the world’s oldest land creature. This animal was born back in 1832.
Jonathan is interesting because he was first photographed over a century ago.
The first photograph of Jonathan was taken back in 1886.
Needless to say, this creature was 54 years old when it was first photographed.
Even though Jonathan is older than anyone else, he still acts like a young man full of energy. However, doctors found that the animal is aging and there are signs of aging. Day after day he loses his sight and smell.
It should be noted that, despite its advanced age, the animal follows a strict diet to maintain shape.
