By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The world’s oldest animal, Jonathan the tortoise celebrated his 190th birthday, CNN reports.

The Seychelles giant tortoise lives in Saint Helena, a British overseas territory in the South Atlantic Ocean.

The Governor’s house in St. Helena is opening for 3 days for visitors who wish to celebrate Jonathan’s birthday.

They have also made commemorative stamps.

Jonathan is believed to have been born in 1832 and was taken to St. Helena from Seychelles in 1882 as a gift to Sir William Grey-Wilson – who later became governor.

According to Guinness World Records, Jonathan is also the oldest ever chelonian, a category that encompasses all turtles, terrapins, and tortoises.
