Are there any animals that live longer in captivity than they would otherwise?

    Generally, most animals live longer in captivity than in the wild due to veterinary care and absence of predators. However, animals in captivity lack the social and mental capacities that come with living in the wild.

    Yes, many animals live longer in captivity where they are well cared for.  This is because they don’t have any predators, have regular access to necessary food, and are cared for by vets.  This isn’t to say that captivity is better for the animals.  Although zoos try to replicate their natural habitat, it is impossible to do so.
