Lifespan, longevity, and ageing
Maximum longevity: 27 years (captivity) Observations: Some older publications list lions as capable of living up to 30 years (Theodor Haltenorth and Helmut Diller 1977), which is based on anecdotal reports and probably incorrect. Record longevity in captivity belongs to a wild born male that died at Cologne Zoo at about 27 years of age. A hybrid between a leopard and a lion lived for 24 years and a hybrid between a lion and tiger lived for 24.2 years (Richard Weigl 2005).
