At 172 years of age, Harriet the giant Galápagos land tortoise is the oldest known living creature on Earth. Born in November 1830 on an island in the Galápagos, Harriet spent the earliest years of her life in the wild. In 1835, when Harriet was only 5 years old and about the size of a dinner plate, noted English naturalist Charles Darwin landed on Isla Santa Cruz, her home. Shortly thereafter, Harriet and two of her friends found themselves aboard the HMS Beagle headed for England, marked as subjects of scientific research.
