The family of reptiles began evolving around 200 million years ago. Around 180 million years ago, the turtle order branched out from the main reptile lineage.
Turtles have been around even before the first dinosaurs were documented, so around 230 million years. The large tortoises from the Galapagus Islands can live for more than 200 years. American box turtles live for about 100 years and on average, sea turtles live for about 75 years or more.
