According to Vet Joe Hollins, the reptile has a tremendous libido, and enjoys having sex especially when the sun is out.

She adds, “The cataracts don’t bother him, he knows his territory.”

Jonathan, the tortoise, who lives on the island of St Helena in the Atlantic, was born in 1832 when William IV was king.

But passers-by have heard Jonathan making love at his home in the governor’s mansion.
