I think temperature plays a part too...but I also think diet is a part of longevity too.
Also found this to be interesting......
I would agree. It is something I have been thinking about. With changing season, availability and verity of insects change.
I get your point, and don't disagree with the thought experiment (I've often responded to questions here citing climatological conditions), but on a forum where the main topic of discussion is keeping animals in captivity, I don't see how taking enclosures* out of the equation is pragmatic. YMMV.
If I've been too pedantic, I apologize.
*Personally, I prefer "enclosure" to "cage".
Yes you missed the point as usual.
It isn’t about what is easiest, but what they need.
You can’t change what they need based on your convince.
I said enclosures to be handled individually dependent on the individual location.
If you can’t provide proper, why keep the animals?
They are “exotic pets “ for a reason
