Jonathan the Giant Tortoise Finally Gets a Bath After 184 Years

Here's one shell of a story: Jonathan the Giant Tortoise — reputed to be the oldest known living land animal on Earth at an estimated age of 184 years — has finally had a bath.

The massive reptile is considered a "national treasure" on the tiny British island territory of St. Helena. He reportedly was a mere 50 years old when he was delivered as a gift to St. Helena by the governor of the Seychelles in the late 1800s.
