What is the life expectancy of a wild mustang?
Wild mustangs can live anywhere from 15 to 20 years of age. Sometimes shorter if poisoned or injured.

A wild rabbit is expected to live 1-5 years at the most. They have lots of threats such as predators and natural disasters .
All mustangs are free roaming horses, so in a sense, they are wild, but because they are descendants from domesticated horses that the Spanish brought over they are not wild h…orses, they are called feral horses.
Wild mustangs? Well, there might be some in Colorado? But there are not really many left.
Rats in the wild can live up to one year at best. Pet rats live a little longer; 2-3 years when kept properly.
It really depends on what animal you are reffering to.. Animals in captivity can live twice as long as animals in the wild.. Some animals can live up to the same age in an…y.. There are more dangers to animals in the wild, such as predetors, poachers and lack of food/water.. Animals bred in captivity have no real dangers so they would be considered to live longer.
It depends on who is chasing him. At his fastest he can go 40 to 50 mph.
It seems that anything or anybody that gets in man's way is considered expendable. Mustangs compete with some rancher's cattle and sheep for federal grazing land. The mustangs… were protected under the endangered species laws and their numbers exploded. Every year some are rounded up into holding pens with the hope they will be adopted in the Mustang Adoption Program. But there are far too many horses for available homes. I feel a better way is to round up the stallions and geld all but a few of the best ones. Release them to live out their lives as wild but non-breeding horses. Another part of the problem is the absence of natural enemies to the mustangs. There are a few places where wolves are being reintroduced to their old habitats but these also are viewed as pests by certain ranchers. Eleminating large predators upset the whole ecosystem. These kind of problems almost never have a simple answer.
The American west. Of the over 36,500 mustangs in the wild at present, 2/3 of those live in the state of Nevada.
I can tell you that my 1997 Mustang 4.6L GT convertible has 190K miles, mostly highway driving and good maintenance.
Basically how any other wild animal lives. There is the risk of being captured by humans or being hunted as prey by carnivores, but wild horses have survived in the wild fo…r thousands of years. They graze on grasses and they grow thick coats during the winter so they don't freeze. Horses are tough animals, and if they weren't, there would be any more.
Several places out west mostly, but over half the U.S. population reside in Nevada.
Sugar gliders in the wild have a life expectancy of 4-8 years.
In Animal Life
One way to think about this is to look at what lifespan was when we did live in the wild. Until settled town-dwelling began (around 700BC in Europe), adult life expectancy was… around 29 years. This is calculated from the age distribution of burials excavated, so probably excludes all those who died near birth - probably a very high number. Things didn't get much better for the next thousand years either - average life expectancy in the Roman empire was probably about 35 and if you made 50 you were old. If you mean how long would we live in the wild today with current medical technology, then I suspect it would reduce old age somewhat, giving a life expectancy of around 65.
In Arctic Foxes
These beautiful canids have a life expectancy of three to six years in the wild.
A wild mustang stays warm by growing a thicker coat in the winter and shedding the extra hair in the summer so it doesn't get too cold.
This varies about species of whale. Not many whales live in captivity as the one people get mixed up is killer whales which are not actually whales. Orcas in wild can life to …60 years old and rarely live half of that in captivity.
