WHY do turtles live for a long time?

The average tortoise lives over two hundred years. Lots of people mistakenly think that turtles live so long because they don’t age, thanks to their slow lifestyle. In fact, turtles live so long because they simply have incredible internal organs that do not age or wear out.

Their internal organs, even in their deepest old age, continue to function just as they did when they were young.
