  • A 190 year old tortoise, Jonathan, has officially become the oldest turtle or tortoise ever recorded.
  • He lives on St. Helena, an island in the South Atlantic Ocean and likes to feed on cucumber, cabbage and carrots.
  • It is speculated that giant tortoises quickly kill off damaged cells in a process called apoptosis, which may be a factor that help protect them against damage to cells that normally deteriorate as we age.
