Longevity of Crocodilians in Captivity.
International Zoo News Vol. 61. No. 5 (2014), pp. 363-373
Since 1978 the author has collected numerous records on animal longevities. This data has been collected during personal examination of archives at zoological collections worldwide and through correspondence with zoo staff members. Taxonomy in this list follows that used in the publications of the Crocodile Specialist Group of the IUCN.
This paper is the first comprehensive listing for every species and subspecies of crocodilian for which the author has a verified and known longevity record, including initial date of entry (hatch, capture, arrival) and a known date of death and/or verification as still living. Documentation of longevities at the subspecies level has not been included in previous treatments of the Crocodilia. Anecdotal records have not been accepted.
