    Jonathan, the world's oldest known animal, is regaining his health after eating more nutritious foods.

    Jonathan's species, the Aldabra giant tortoise, nearly went extinct in the 18th and 19th centuries as people hunted them for food.

    "What a drag it is getting old," the Rolling Stones famously sang. And nobody knows that more than Jonathan, the 183-year-od Aldabra giant tortoise that's thought to be the oldest known living animal on Earth.

    Old age has caught up with Jonathan, robbing him of his senses of sight and smell and, until a few years ago, relegating him to an unhealthy diet of twigs on the British island territory of St. Helena (map), off Africa's western coast.

    But in 2014, local veterinarian Joe Hollins noticed Jonathan's plight and started giving the reptile a more nutritious menu, which includes apples, carrots, cucumbers, bananas, and guava.

    A year later, Jonathan is back in the news—and seemingly healthier, according to Hollins' latest update on a St. Helena information website.

    "The feeding has improved him surprisingly," Hollins wrote on December 7.
