Jonathan, A 189-Year-Old Tortoise, Was Photographed In 1902 And Is Still Alive Today
Meet Jonathan, the 189-year-old huge tortoise that holds the record for being the globe’s largest living earthbound mammal.
Jonathan is believed to have been taken to St Helena Island around the year 1832.
Jonathan seems a full-grown adult in a picture shot in 1902.
Since it takes a large turtle about half a century to obtain grown-up dimension, he is thought to have been born around 1832.
1902 vs. Now
Although Jonathan is the earliest living land pet, other tortoises have actually lived much longer in the past.
