Note: Since this is just an average life expectancy, no doubt you will always have some exceptions. You will definitely have a few animals exceeding their life span.

Some animals life span might seem very short while others are reasonably long when compared to other animal species. However, the average life expectancy of a given animal is determined by factors such as genetic makeup, metabolic rate, body size, age of sexual maturity etc. It is important to note also that some domesticated animal can live longer or shorter than if they were living in their natural environment (habitat). The reason for this may due to conditions such as new lifestyle, change of diet, disease, predator (absent), etc. Therefore, in spite of the fact that many of these values given in the list below are based on the records taken from various sources, it should not be seen as the absolute maximum lifespan.
