Lifespan, ageing, and relevant traits

Observations

Little is known about the longevity of these animals. They have been reported to live up to 7 years in the wild [0576], yet considering the longevity of similar species maximum longevity could be significantly underestimated. In addition, one study estimated an annual mortality of 7%, suggesting some animals may live 30-35 years and possibly longer [0445].
