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!
