When I was 10 years old, I got two fire belly newts as pets. Today I'm nearly 32 and both of them are still alive. They were already adults when I got them so who knows how old they could actually be. It's possible they've been on this planet longer than me!
These days as a scientist, I would be much more apprehensive about purchasing an exotic pet due to the many possible negative impacts that can occur. It's extremely important that if you are an owner of an exotic pet, never ever release it back into the wild. This can lead to invasive species having detrimental impacts on native ecosystems. The names of my newts you ask? Billy #1 and Billy #2. Any normal name a 10 year old boy would choose. I've forgotten which is #1 and #2...😬
