    My oldest right now is my mangrove snake. She was full grown when she was imported in 1991, when she was at a local nature center, so she's at least 16 or so - unfortunately, no exact number. My Russian tortoise is 12, and last year I had a burm pass away just shy of her 19th birthday.

    Longest I ever had a herp, I had a burmese python from 2 weeks old to 8 years where it went from 24 inches to 14 feet. I couldnt find anyone to buy it and ended up giving it to a pet store, who immediately sold it to a snake breeder, doh!!!

    Most of my friends are rescued so I have no idea of ages (with a few exceptions) I do have a pair of 10 year old igs, an 8 year old ig and as Ken said, A Russian Tort that could be 5 or 100, no way to tell.

    My oldest that i know the exact age of is my first bd that i got, he is about 2 and a half almost 3. I do have a full grown box turtle that I found, driving along the road and somebody hit him,(I was very upset that they didnt even stop) I've had him for about 2 years, not sure of his age.

    I had to guess at 11-15 years. I've got a tiger salamander that I've had for about 13 years, but I caught him as a neonate (I think. I don't use the term much), so I don't really know how old he is. I'm pretty certain that some of my turtles are older than 20 years, but I've got no proof of their age, just a hunch.

    I posted 11-15 Miss Zak is 13 years old. I could have voted in the 6-10 years as well. We got Iggy when he was a hatchling and he is now 6 years old.
