    Default elok life span


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    This is for those keepers experienced with eloks. I'm curious what their average life span in captivity is, I haven't seen this info anywhere else. Even if you could give me the average or oldest ages of animals you've personally owned, it would be interesting to know.
    Thanks!

    Default Cyrto life spans


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    From what I've learned from others keeping cyrtodactylus species, and from my own experience, some of the species are long lived. Male Pulchellus and peguensis have been known to live well into their late teens. Of course females tend to have much shorter life spans around 7-10 years. I currently have one ltc c.b. male peguensis zebraicus that is 9 years old. He does'nt chirp as often as he used to, but is still eating good.
