Demography and Populations

There is no information related to topics such as age at first breeding (although probably at least at age 2-3), life span and survivorship, dispersal, or population regulation. However, in accordance with its low reproductive rate and high parental investment, and the delayed dispersal of juveniles, the species’ maximum life span should not be less than 15 years, and possibly more than 20 years.
