How old does a Eastern quoll get? (age expectancy)

What is the maximal age a Eastern quoll reaches?

An adult Eastern quoll (Dasyurus viverrinus) usually gets as old as 6.75 years.

Eastern quolls are around 20 days in the womb of their mother. When born, they weight 96 grams (0.21 lbs) and measure 0.4 cm (0′ 1″). As a member of the Dasyuridae family (genus: Dasyurus), a Eastern quoll caries out around 5 little ones per pregnancy, which happens around 1 times a year. Fully grown, they reach a bodylength of 33.3 cm (1′ 2″).

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.
