Jonathan The Giant Tortoise May Be The Oldest Living Land Animal On Earth
It's pretty much impossible to avoid thinking about your own mortality from time to time. Yet, as important as it is to remember that life is short, the truth is that our lifespans as humans are much longer than that of many other animals.
Tortoises, however, are an exception. They're known for living even longer than humans... but there is one tortoise in particular who is so old, that it's hard to believe he's real.
Don't be mistaken: Jonathan, the giant tortoise in question, is definitely real, and he's still very much alive!
