    I had my four Leopard geckos for about 4 years. that's the longest I've owned one yet. Then I gave them to a good friend when I moved, he probably still has them too.

    We had our Iguana Napoleon for about 10 years and our box turtles are just approaching the 10 year mark (although one of them is about 45 years old).

    I got my first Green iggy when i was 16,had him for about a year, when i lived with my dad. But when i moved back to my mothers house my step-dad hated it. my iggy Oscar(the Grouch) was a good judge of character,he didnt like my step-dad either.About a month after moving back he let oscar go and blamed the dog for opening the cage. Then after being married(years later) Reptar (my daughter loves the RugRats) joined our family. Sadly to say only to be stolen off the back patio in the middle of the night. Reptar was around 3yrs. old.

    hmm...think my longest was a painted turtle i caught as a baby in 1999.
    had him for 5 years. i'd still have him now if he diden't escape from his pen.
