Most giant land tortoises can live for more than a century. especially the extant species from the Galapagos islands. Adwaita, an Aldabra tortoise from India, had a life span of 255 years from 1750-2006. Smaller land and sea turtles have an average lifespan of 70, though some have been reported to reach 100 years as well. The common pet turtle, the red eared slider, can live up to 40 years in captive conditions with proper care.
