How old does a Eld’s deer get? (age expectancy)

What is the maximal age a Eld’s deer reaches?

An adult Eld’s deer (Cervus eldii) usually gets as old as 19.33 years.

Eld’s deers are around 240 days in the womb of their mother. When born, they weight 4.69 kg (10.34 lbs) and measure 2.9 cm (0′ 2″). As a member of the Cervidae family (genus: Cervus), their offspring is 1 babies per pregnancy. Fully grown, they reach a bodylength of 1.65 meter (5′ 5″).

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.

A Eld's deer gets as old as 19.33 years

Eld’s deer (Panolia eldii), also known as the thamin or brow-antlered deer, is an endangered species of deer indigenous to South Asia. The species was first described and given its binomial name from specimens obtained in Manipur in India in 1839. The Manipur name for the deer was noted as Sungnaee and it was described in 1842 by John McClelland as being “nondescript” but it was given the name Cervus eldi by Guthrie. in honour of Lt. Percy Eld, a British officer who was attached to the residency at Manipur. The three subspecies of the Eld’s deer are:Panolia eldii eldi: The Manipuri brow-antlered deer is found in Manipur, India. It is called sangai in Meitei.P. e. thamin: The Burmese brow-antlered deer found in Myanmar, and westernmost Thailand.P. e. siamensis: The Thai brow-antlered deer is found in Cambodia, China, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam, and should perhaps be treated as a separate species. The population on the Chinese island of Hainan is sometimes considered another subspecies, P. e. hainanus, but this is not supported by genetic evidence. It was described by Lydekker in 1915.
