The oldest living turtle in the world lives in the Galapagos Islands, and his “friendly” name is Lonesome George. Unfortunately, he is the only survivors of his species, the Geochelone elephantopus abingdoni. But there’s a good news: some biologist of Yale have identified a tortoise that seems to have half his genes in common with George; so, there’s still some hope for the survival of this species.
I like desert tortoises their cool and dudey.
I feel tight on them because they are endangered and we should do something about it,they are cute and adorable and so innocent,i love their eyes.
Harriet the Giant Galapagos Land Turtle is recorded as the worlds oldest living animal. It is almost 180 years old and was collected by Charles Darwin in 1835.
The oldest tortoise ever recorded was Tu’i Malila, which was presented to the Tongan royal family, shortly after its birth in 1777. It remained within the royal family until its death in 1965 by natural causes. Upon its death, TuiMalila was 188 years old.
