Longevities for the majority of the early saigas have been lost in time, though data do exist for the Berlin pair of 1872. I do not have the day or month of arrival for these animals, but the female lived until 15 October 1873 and the male survived until 12 October 1875. Two shipments of saigas, one in 1902 the other in 1906, were received at Woburn Abbey by the eleventh Duke of Bedford from the firm Hagenbeck. Both importations proved disappointing with only a single animal surviving longer than two years.
