What is the maximal age a Daubenton’s bat reaches?

An adult Daubenton’s bat (Myotis daubentoni) usually gets as old as 28 years.

Daubenton’s bats are around 55 days in the womb of their mother. When born, they weight 2 grams (0 lbs) and measure 2.9 cm (0′ 2″). As a member of the Vespertilionidae family (genus: Myotis), a Daubenton’s bat caries out around 1 little ones per pregnancy, which happens around 1 times a year.
