How common is it for wild animals to die of old age?

    This is going to vary from species to species, habitat to habitat, and generation to generation. It also depends how you define old age. If an animal gets picked off by a hunter or a predator because he isn’t so fast anymore, is this a result of old age? Remember, old age, is not really a cause of death. When we say that a person died of old age, it is usually defined more specifically as some sort of organ failure.
