Default How long do they live?

Hi! How long do these little guys live for? I thought it was 2.5-3 years, but now I keep reading 1.5-2.5 years. I only started looking cause it *seems* like my little guy may be slowing down, and he's a month away from being 1.5 years old.

Default Re: How long do they live?

Syrians usually live to about 2 years, some may live up to about two & a half, they all age individually though & some can begin to show signs of age by about 18 months.
Russian hams tend to live to about two, robos I'm not sure of, Chinese can live to 3 or older but not all do.
If your ham is not yet 18 months & appears to be slowing down it could be a health issue rather than age so do a health check just to be sure.
