Giant tortoises are characteristic reptiles of certain tropical islands. They can weigh as much as 300 kg (660 lbs) and can grow to be 1.3 m (4 ft) long. They live in the Seychelles, the Mascarenes and the Galapagos. Giant tortoises are among the world's longest-living animals, with an average lifespan of 100 years or more.

However, discoveries of 19th century ivory, slate, and jade spear points in freshly killed whales in 1993, 1995, 1999, and 2007 triggered research based on structures in the whale's eye, suggesting at least some individuals reached 150–200 years old.
