In 1737 the Indian ocean, on the island of Edgemont, was caught an instance of one species of giant tortoises, which was identified by scientists in 100 years. This turtle was brought to England, where for a long time lived with one lover, and then was transferred to London zoo, where he continued to live in the twenties of the current century, and probably lives now. If the calculation of zoologists about her age at capture was correct, it is the animal currently has exceeded three hundred years, and the turtle can be considered the oldest of known animals.
Were described and other occasions turtles in captivity to a hundred years or more, not only huge, but common, as a Greek tortoise that live in the countries of the Mediterranean coast, and in places the USSR in the Caucasus and in Transcaucasia. It would be interesting to get data on this issue for widespread steppe and marsh turtles. It is highly likely that their life expectancy is high.
