    Old!

    It depends on the species, but pretty much all of them can see 100 easily.

    It all really depends on the species of turtle... Many can live well over a hundred years the oldest 175 years as said above but the type of turtle that lives the longest isn't a turtle at all but a tortise .Galápagos Islands have the largest and oldset liveing species.

    a box/land turtle only 15-25 years if takin care of very good. but most people end up killing theres be fore it turns 15 (not on perpose) fresh water turtles live to be 25-50 years but in captivaty sometimes shorter. Sea turtles I dont think you can own but they can live to be 300-900 years old.
