Oldest living animal discovered

When you think of old age, 70 sounds about the right time to die, right? Well not for the Galapagos giant tortoise! The average lifespan of a Galapagos Giant Tortoise is almost 180 years!

Then it comes as no surprise that these animals could possibly have this longevity due to the fact that they are so freaking slow. The average weight of these reptiles is just barely below half a ton!

They tend to eat their weight in shrubbery , being dedicated vegetarians, on a daily basis. Not only that, but the shell is literally such hardened calcium , which grows thicker each year, that even modern rifle rounds might have difficulty penetrating it!

We lied, sort of, this animal was not discovered. Rather, back in the day, Charles Darwin himself found them. Quoting them as being rather "amusing" in his work "on the origin of species".

If you ever see one, gtfo out of it's way! This thing could bulldoze you at the speed of well... a tortoise.

And you know what? At age 180 , they are still going strong! No ED , nothing!
