Observations

Most animals in the wild do not live more than 10 years, though a maximum longevity of 22 years has been suggested as possible [0434]. Record longevity in captivity is 20.2 years [0671]. There is some debate whether these animals are a separate species from the West Caucasian tur (Capra caucasica).
