I seem to remember the Dallas zoo had a group of Auratus that were almost 20 years old. Ian Hiler at the Aquarium of the Americas in New Orleans showed me a blue jean Pumilio years ago that he said was 14 years old...and it was still producing offspring. I am sure that these are exceptions to the rule, however a good environment and varied diet will produce surprising results.
I would be interested to hear how long some private breeders have had the same group of frogs, I don't think I had anything longer than 4 or 5 years.

There was a thread about this a year ago, and 15ish years was the oldest out of the people who posted. I do not recall if they were breeding or not.
