How old does a Canyon bat get? (age expectancy)

What is the maximal age a Canyon bat reaches?

An adult Canyon bat (Pipistrellus hesperus) usually gets as old as 6 years.

When born, they weight 903.14 kg (1991.09 lbs) and measure 1 cm (0′ 1″). As a member of the Vespertilionidae family (genus: Pipistrellus), a Canyon bat caries out around 1 little ones per pregnancy, which happens around 1 times a year. Fully grown, they reach a bodylength of 12.18 meter (40′ 0″).

As a reference: Usually, humans get as old as 100 years, with the average being around 75 years. After being carried in the belly of their mother for 280 days (40 weeks), they grow to an average size of 1.65m (5′ 5″) and weight in at 62 kg (137 lbs), which is obviously highly individual.

The species has historically been placed in the genus Pipistrellus, but molecular evidence does not show any close relationship with that genus, and accordingly it was classified into its own genus, Parastrellus, in 2006.
