Hi, what is the lifespan of a captive bred pumilio in a vivarium? Has anyone ever kept a pumilio that had a extraordinary long lifespan beyond the average? How long?

If you had a pumilio that died, please post how long you had him/her.

Thanks!

age

Dart frogs I hear are fairly long lived. I know Patrick Nabors has a reticulatus 9 years old and still alive, still breeding. I've heard of a pumilio living to be 9 years old too. Dart frog lifespan documents are sketchy. Most say they live 6-9 years, but I'm sure they can live much longer. I read somebody's website they have a pair of tincs that are 10 years old and still breeding. I have heard that E. tricolor have lived to be 15 and auratus 17.

D. pumilio

The pumilio in my school's collection is coming up on six years of age. We had a few others that died after living for seven and four years. All were CB.
