ive had 5 yr olds, heck ive had 5 yr old petshop ratties, and now as knowledge of how they need to be cared for (no cedar/pine, more fresh foods ect) and better breeding becomming more acessable to the general pet buying public, i belive lifespans should start to increase...

but while theres still places mass producing ratties for petshops the average life span drops incredibly.

with well bred ratties ive found they dont realy slow down much...
i had an almost 5 yr old female that was still running round like a baby untill about 5 hours before she passed away in her sleep.

Holy moly, that's amazing! definitely not the norm, though. But amazing nonetheless!
