In the wild, mice live under a year due to predators and environemts.
While living in a protected envrionment, 2 – 3 years.
Did you know there is a Methuselah Mouse Prize for whoever breeds or engineers extremely long-lived laboratory mice? They are trying to get funding for research about reversing aging in humans by first proving it can be done in mice. No good news yet, but as of 2005, a genetically engineered mouse lived nearly 5 years and another who was not receiving any genetic, pharmacological or dietary treatment but kept in a stimulating environment lived over 4 years.
