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

An adult Thorold’s deer (Cervus albirostris) usually gets as old as 18 years.

Thorold’s deers are around 263 days in the womb of their mother. When born, they weight 140 grams (0.31 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 65 cm (2′ 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.

A Thorold's deer gets as old as 18 years

Thorold’s deer (Cervus albirostris) is a threatened species of deer found in grassland, shrubland, and forest at high altitudes in the eastern Tibetan Plateau. It is also known as the white-lipped deer (Baichunlu, 白唇鹿, in Simplified Chinese, ཤྭ་བ་མཆུ་དཀར།་ in Standard Tibetan) for the white patches around its muzzle.This deer fills an ecological niche similar to the Tibetan red deer (shou, the subspecies wallichi of the red deer species group). It was first scientifically described by Nikolai Przhevalsky in 1883, and the first specimens were procured by G. W. Thorold, after whom the species is named. As of early 2011, more than 100 Thorold’s deer are kept in ISIS-registered zoos, and in 1998 it was estimated that about 7000 remain in the wild.
