[The maximum longevity of geckos (Reptilia: Lacertilia: Gekkonoidea) in captivity is reported
for 55 species and subspecies. Ninety-five additional maximal literature records are reviewed,
yielding a total of 37 new records. Among 15 species.with samples of n greater-than- or-equal-to
10 (in the authors' care), the maximum specific longevity (after capture usually as adults) ranged
from 1.5 to 17.5 years. Among the total 123 taxa, 8 species attained maximum longevities of 2037 years. Maximum longevities are partly correlated to sample size, specific body size, and also
to ecological niche breadth. Additional sources for variation, including temperature effects, are
discussed. Usually, longevity in captivity greatly exceeds the longevity in nature. To further such
investigations, the cooperation of professionals and amateurs is advocated. Intraspecific variation
of captive longevity will be discussed elsewhere. Reprint Endnote 94/35]
