How old does a Sumichrast’s vesper rat get? (age expectancy)

What is the maximal age a Sumichrast’s vesper rat reaches?

An adult Sumichrast’s vesper rat (Nyctomys sumichrasti) usually gets as old as 5.17 years.

Sumichrast’s vesper rats are around 33 days in the womb of their mother. When born, they weight 4 grams (0.01 lbs) and measure 5.1 cm (0′ 3″). As a member of the Muridae family (genus: Nyctomys), a Sumichrast’s vesper rat caries out around 2 little ones per pregnancy, which happens around 8 times a year. Fully grown, they reach a bodylength of 30 cm (1′ 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.
