How old does a Whiskered bat get? (age expectancy)

What is the maximal age a Whiskered bat reaches?

An adult Whiskered bat (Myotis mystacinus) usually gets as old as 9.25 years.

When born, they weight 80 kg (176.37 lbs) and measure 0.9 cm (0′ 1″). As a member of the Vespertilionidae family (genus: Myotis), a Whiskered bat caries out around 1 little ones per pregnancy, which happens around 1 times a year. Fully grown, they reach a bodylength of 5.1 meter (16′ 9″).
