If I took you out to the woods and set you free how long do you think you would live?
Seriously I think it depends a lot on the species in question. Some species simply can not live in captivity period. Other thrive because they are often provided with optimal conditions required for survival.
Take people for example; we grow biger and live longer because we are eating better and better foods (generally our diets are better) than we did centuries ago.
