 Aging caiman

Hello,

I have a Spectacled Caiman that would be 25 years old this November. He has been in ill health lately and under my care along with the advice and two visits to a young, willling vet who has a specialty in avians and reptiles.

Do you know what the most recent concensus on longevity in captivity is? There seems to be a wide variety of opinions out there. When I got him more than 24 years ago the thinking was 40 - 60 years or more. I will gladly share my experiences and his symptoms.

My sincere thanks! He may not make it much longer and we go way back... : (
