Vaquita

https://faunafocus.com/home/july-2017/#jp-carousel-4425

The oldest vaquita was estimated to be 21 years of age.

The life span of the vaquita is expected to be similar to that of the harbor porpoise, approximately 20 years. Both mature early, 3 years for harbor porpoise, likely close to 3 but potentially up to 6 years for the vaquita.

The oldest vaquita, as of 2008, was estimated to be 21 years of age.
