The world's oldest land animal just got his first bath ever, and it only took an estimated 184 years.
Jonathan the giant tortoise is considered a national treasure on St. Helena Island in the Atlantic.
Surgical soap and soft brushes were reportedly used to protect his shell.
Dr. Joe Hollins, the vet who gave Jonathan his bath, said it was "purely for aesthetic reasons," but after the cleaning, Hollins noticed that the rings on Jonathan's shell, which would usually tell his age, had faded away.
