Code page (Names and addresses).
Current status of this page
Policy change for names and addresses.
If you do not know the genus and only know the common name select a genus and go to it. You may then page up and down the page looking at the common name of the species species you are searching.
When you get to the bottom of the page hit the "go next page button" and do the same thing again.
This longevity page is a link from Frank and Kate's Home Page which contains additional items of herpetological interest and Breeding Home Page - .
Our interest is in the long term maintenance and breeding of reptiles and amphibians in captivity. We plan to provide you with longevity records for all species of reptile or amphibian. In our book we only have room to list the top two longevity records. Here on the web we can list many more. Because the records span over many years and because some wish to remain anonymous, a few of the addresses and phones may be out of date.
This is a long-term ongoing project. We need more information to update these records to the levels where they should be. If you have any animals which you feel might be a record, please let us know We hope more private collectors will respond when they see the advantages of collected information as is presented here. Your information, can be included. We have recently changed our policy on listing of names and addresses. Please send in your information and encourage others you know to also list.
It is important to know a couple of quick things for these pages to make sense. Indexes are by genus. The data, listed by species, with the the code (name and/or address) and then the number of years, months, date acquired, wild or captive born, adult or juvenile, sex, and living or dead.
If you are having trouble keeping track of your animals you might be interested in our software program Animal TRACKS. Tracks has been running since 1986 and will manage any type of animal collection.

In the past, by default we listed complete address and phone for all breeders. When this breeding information moved to the web page we decided not to list private breeders' names and addresses. Instead of full addresses we list only the person's name and country.
Conversations with breeders over the years about reasons why they are reluctant to respond included several comments revolving around fear of strangers knowing where they live. This is understandable and is a difficult bridge to cross. As a compromise to allow more breeders to respond, they may now remain as anonymous as they wish. A minimum preference would be to list their name and country. In the future, by default, we will only list the person's name and country. If you wish to have more information listed just drop us a note and we will list whatever information you want.
Some examples would be: from best to worst.
(A) Name, Address, City, State, Zip, work phone, home phone, fax phone, e-mail.
(B) Name, City, State, Zip, work phone, home phone, fax phone, e-mail.
(C) Name, State, Country, phone.
(D) Name, Country.
Pick one of the above formats or make up your own. Please send your information, today.
WE ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO LIST THEIR FULL NAMES AND ADDRESSES, ETC. REMEMBER YOU MUST LET US KNOW IF YOU WANT MORE THAN YOUR NAME AND COUNTRY TO BE LISTED.
To send Frank or Kate an e-mail, our addresses are: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Pages first went up in October 1995.
