The alligator snapping turtle is a very long-lived creature. Individuals in captivity have lived to 70 years. The turtle's longevity raises lots of challenges for understanding their full life history, the sustainability of their populations, and what sort of conservation risks they may face, since their life spans dwarf the active careers of most researchers and the duration of their studies.
