This was prompted by bill schwinn's recent classified ad regarding his 15 year old Siplawinis that are still breeding. I know there is a poll regarding oldest frogs in people's collections, but the question I'm curious about, is what are people's oldest continuous breeders? It doesn't have to be year to year, but animals that are getting up there in age and are still managing to produce viable offspring. I'm simply interested in anecdotal information, if anyone has some to share.

I like this thread, it makes me happy to think that my oldest groups of breeding auratus at 7yrs or, so could be around for another 7.

Actually with good care they could be around for another 20 years. While uncommon, there are a number of reports of frogs in the tinctorius group (tinctorius, auratus, leucomelas) reaching the twenty plus range.

With the smaller frogs like pumilio and thumbnails, there are a number of reports of more than ten years but I'm unaware of any reaching the 20 year mark.
