It’s a well-known fact that humans live longer than most animals. But tortoises are an exception. One of them even lived to the age of 187, which is a long time. Jonathan, a giant tortoise, is now the world’s oldest land animal, having been born in 1832. The tortoise is now living on the island of Saint Helena, Seychelles, and lives with the governor at the Plantation House, where they live.
I think it’s interesting that there was a picture of Jonathan taken in 1886. It can be compared to his current picture, just like a modern challenge called the #187yearschallenge. It’s important to note that the tortoise was already around 54 years old when this picture was taken. If you look at Jonathan, you can see that he is getting older. His senses of sight and smell are getting weaker, but he is still very active and alive. Jonathan doesn’t eat enough grass anymore, so Dr. Hollins gives him special food with more calories every week.
