Meet Jonathan the Tortoise. He was born in 1832, and at the age of 180, is by far the oldest resident of the Island of Saint Helena, and among land animals, the world. He missed Napoleon by only ten years.

"His great age means he can barely see or smell the grass, and his beak is so blunt he has to be fed by hand. But Jonathan, the oldest known creature in the world, enjoys a vigorous private life." -Saint Helena Online
