In Reply to: cuban tree frog life span posted by reptilekeeper3 on April 02, 2003 at 20:27:40:

The average age for a male cuban in the wild is only around 1 year, from egg to death, so yours did relatively well. In captivity of course, the lifespan should really be longer (mine is going on his 2nd year) due to reduced stress levels related to breeding since they really go for it, as many florida residents will tell you. The females do tend to live a bit longer, around three years, although some people have kept them for 15 years (questionable)
It does sound a bit unfair, especially since similar sized frogs like whites can live up to 15 years old! But then again, cubans are very active, so it is not surprising. Yours did well though, so you can be satisfied he had a good life.
Hope this helps.
Rob
