   It’s a tortoise. He’s either 187 or 188. His name’s Jonathan.

   He hatched in the Seychelles archipelago around 1832, and he moved to the island of St. Helena in 1882 (he was a gift to the governor), where he’s lived ever since.

   He’s quite a guy. He’s older than cars and planes. He eats bananas, lettuce, and other fruits and vegetables. When World War I began, he was 82. He likes to listen to people play tennis.

The oldest living bowhead whale is 211 years old.

   bowhead whales

   Also known as the Arctic whale, the bowhead is by far the longest living mammal on Earth. Some bowhead whales have been found with the tips of ivory spears still lodged in their flesh from failed attempts by whalers 200 years ago. The oldest known bowhead whale was at least 211 years old.
