The oldest known animal in the world

"Jonathan, who is a Seychelles giant tortoise, lived to see it all. At 188 years old, he's now the oldest-known animal in the world and he's living a relaxing life on the remote island of St. Helena in the South Atlantic, where he's been since the late 1880s." As soon as I figure out how to put his picture here I will https://images.app.goo.gl/UF5GqDYnDDxbLFjL8

12. Invertebrate

Now I'm sorry I read the shark thing. Scientists! If you're trying an experiment and you're killing most of the subjects, stop the experiment

14. Napolean Bonaparte was exiled to St. Helena

where he died in 1821. Jonathan hatched about 11 years later and was moved to St. Helena some 60 years after that.

There's a perspective for ya.
