ok guys, every where i read i get conflicting averages so whats the age of everyones leos?
i've read averages ages of 5 to 7 years (from a very experienced author supposedly?) and anything upto 30 years???
my male Mr T is about 12 or 13 years old now
I have a 17 year old male and a 2 year old female
My 17 year old was given to me by an old work colleague who's children had grown up and moved out while she was "stuck" with him.
I was glad to take him on, he's so friendly. Got a regenerated tail but is perfect to me.
Got him a 2 year old female a few months ago. They didn't get on at first; maybe she was incubated at "male" temperatures; she's definately a little girl though, they tolerate each other now.
Called them Buddy and Jewel, Buddy being the old man obviously!
i was told by my local rep shop(well pet shop)that a new book had come in with a breeder who had a leo 30yrs old,still alive and fed solely on mealies from day 1,i wouldnt think that was perfect conditions but it certainly worked for him,keeping my fingers crossed for eddie
