I didn't see what species Jonathan is...?

  1. Jonathan (c. approx 1832) is a Seychelles giant tortoise (Aldabrachelys gigantea hololissa) that lives on the island of Saint Helena, a British Overseas Territory in the South Atlantic Ocean. Jonathan was brought to the island from the Seychelles in 1882, along with three other tortoises at about 50 years of age.
