News and Adventures of Hugo and His Friends
The oldest known living animal in the world, Jonathan the tortoise, is going strong at 183 years old. Jonathan, who lives on a small, volcanic island in the South Atlantic called St. Helena, has had an interesting life. He was born in the Seychelles Archipelago in the Indian Ocean. It is said that in 1882 he was given as a gift to the governor of St. Helena. He remains there today, being looked after and cared for. We wish you well, Jonathan!
