Observations

One wild-born male called "Bobo" lived 53.5 years in captivity, making it at least 54 years of age when he died at Lederle Laboratories. While this is the only record of a specimen of this genus to live more than 50 years, another wild-born male specimen lived 46.9 years at Mesker Park Zoo, making it about 48 years-old when he died and making it the second longest-lived specimen of the genus [0671]. One study in the wild found that females can live over 25 years [1091].
