Observations

One specimen lived 13.2 years in captivity [0669]. Considering the longevity of similar species, maximum longevity in these animals could be underestimated. Indeed it has been reported that these animals can live up to 31.6 years in captivity [0979], which is possible but has not been verified; the same study reported that these animals can breed from about 2 years of age in captivity.
