What is the Average Age of the Male Koala?
Researchers and biologists from Australia have confirmed that the average ages of the male koalas are around 12 years. This is a very reasonable age for an animal, as many animals live that long as well e.g., monkeys, dogs, lions etc. However, at maximum the male Koalas have been known to reach around 16 to 18 years as well, but these figures are far and few. Moreover, some male koalas die very young because of some undetected reasons for the observers as well.f-Share Tweet Linkedin Google+ Pinterest VK
However, male Koalas’ age highly depends upon the food availability and the living conditions as well. The male Koalas, who live at the Victorian ranges of Australia, live long and exactly around 12 years, while the male Koalas who live at the Queensland ranges of Australia live slightly less e.g., 10 years on average.f-Share Tweet Linkedin Google+ Pinterest VK
Food availability and habitat are very important and vital for the average ages of the koalas. Koalas are very sensitive creatures and only live on eucalyptus leaves throughout their lives. If there is a slight variation within the availability of these eucalyptus leaves, things could either be negative or positive depending upon the nature of the variation and this will certainly impact the average age of the male koalas. Whenever, the food availability is less, the Koalas’ average age falls down and vice-versa.f-Share Tweet Linkedin Google+ Pinterest VK
