Hi Dave,
I know that there are Typlonectes that are still alive after 15 years that were collected as adults. So I would expect their life span to possibly be in the 20s. I have one at work that is close to 14 years of age and gave birth to a litter of ten babies the year before last.

I have not bred Dermophis as of yet but I have had females give birth about 8 months after we first aquired them. They are on a side of the building at work where the temperature may be too warm in the summer to sucessfully cycle them. You should have been at IAD #3 as I gave a talk on caecilians in captivity.

I have worked with Schistometopum thomenses that have bred and given birth although we lost the offspring after a couple of months.

Ed
