Jonathan the tortoise is so old that he's been around for two world wars, numerous revolutions and outlived a number of his human companions.

Experts believe that Jonathan was born in 1832, making him 183-years-old and likely the world's oldest land creature.

Jonathan began his life in Seychelles, a country located in Southeast Africa. In 1882, when he was already mature, Jonathan was brought to the British territory of St. Helena, a tiny island in the South Atlantic, where he still lives today, reported Telegraph.

Jonathan's namesake, Jonathan Hollins, who is the island's senior veterinary officer, is looking after the tortoise in the paddock at Plantation House, the British governor's residence.
