^--That's twice as long as I thought. XD
I hope I'm wrong and you're right though!

:D I thought the average was 8-10, but normally 6........ DX OH well..

yeah on average they live for 5 years apparently but can live up to 12. All depends on the beardie i suppose, same as humans- average life span of about 80 but some live to 100. I hope my beardie lives for 12 years :D

The oldest beardie I ever saw on this site was 15 yrs old. Her name was Mama. She looked good for her age, too. Our oldest Lonzo, is also 8 yrs old in April. He's still very spry and enjoys running around our beardie proofed living room and bob & blackbeard everthing. We call this Lonzo doing his security checks. Sweetie, our girl, will be 5 in April. Then we have Didi (foster beardie) who's also 5, Leo who's 3 and Rubio who's 2. I'm hoping Lonzo will live to a ripe old age. We're good beardie slaves, so I hope they all live to a ripe old age.
