World's oldest living animal?

What do you think?

Is this tortoise

the same as this one?

A spokesman for the tourist board of St Helena, an island in the South Atlantic, said a photograph of the tortoise that was taken during the Boer War has been found.

Jonathan the tortoise is believed to be 176-years-old and was about 70 at the time the black and white picture was taken.

He was captured munching on grass in about 1900 with a captured Boer War prisoner in the background looking at him.

Today he lives with fellow land tortoises David, Speedy, Emma, Fredricka and Myrtle on a plantation owned by the St Helena government.
