Livingstone’s Flying Fox
The Livingstone’s flying fox can be long-lived in captivity, but its longevity isn’t well-documented and is estimated to be 15-30 years based on other Pteropus species.
The Livingstone’s flying fox can be long-lived in captivity. One founder captured as an adult in 1992 is still alive and has now lived 22 years in captivity.
However, there is very little information known about this species of bat in either captivity or in the wild.
Other Pteropus species are known to live up to 30 years in captivity, and around 10 years or more in the wild.
