Hi guys,

Does anyone have any information regarding the recorded lifespan of Atheris chlorechis in captivity ?

I have read somewhere that they have lived over 10 years in captivity.

Interesting. That is rather short considering other species.

Do any of you who keep the species mind sharing some of your experiences ?
