Lifespan, longevity, and ageing

Observations: There are no detailed studies of longevity in this species but it has been estimated they live up to 40 years in the wild (Bernhard Grzimek 1990). These animals are difficult to breed in captivity (Ronald Nowak 1999), and hence their maximum longevity must b classified as unknown.
