This Giant Tortoise Is Believed To Be The Oldest Living Creature On Earth!

One of the most amazing things about wild animals is that some of them are able to live as long as human beings, if not longer.

The Asian elephant is known to live as long as 86 years. Macaws (which are colorful parrots) can live to be 100. Even eels are believed to reach the ripe old age of 150. But none of these comes close to one incredible creature…

The oldest creature living today is believed to be a giant tortoise who goes by the name of Jonathan. Unlike some tortoises who live their lives as pets, like this giant tortoise who goes for slow walks with his owner, Jonathan roams the island of St. Helena in the south Atlantic Ocean. Jonathan is absolutely amazing, and I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw a photo of him on the very same island in 1882!

Scroll through to see this spectacular tortoise, who doesn’t seem to realize that he is probably the oldest animal in the entire world.

Jonathan truly is one of the most beautiful and impressive creatures in the world. His strength and perseverance have helped him to become an inspiring icon — and his incredible age continues to earn him the respect and adoration that he deserves.

What do you think of this 183-year-old creature? Let us know in the comments.

Please SHARE this impressive tortoise with friends and family!
