What is the maximal age a Urial reaches?

An adult Urial (Ovis vignei) usually gets as old as 13.75 years.

Urials are around 165 days in the womb of their mother. When born, they weight 3.5 kg (7.71 lbs) and measure 2.37 meter (7′ 10″). As a member of the Bovidae family (genus: Ovis), their offspring is 1 babies per pregnancy. Fully grown, they reach a bodylength of 1.42 meter (4′ 8″).
