Average lifespan of the races

How long do you think each race lives(on average)? And I don't mean the ones that are killed through various means, i'm talking about the ones who die of old age. How long do you think they last?

Don't know about "normal" life spans but it gets tricky because some on the rarest occasion turn into Aedra's like Septim and Aedras I think are eternal...

dark/high elves I believe have very very long lives depending on their occupation. I don't know aboutany other races though.....

If you cut a Bosmer in half and count the rings you can tell how old it was.

I always figured the human races had average human life span, elves at least a couple centuries, argonians somewhere between human and elf pegs slightly below human, and khajit relatively short lifespan like only a few decades, then again this is all complete guessing on my part.

Also if I remember correctly the member of house Telvanni lived so long because of magic.

I always figured Argonians might have the potential to have very long life spans since some reptiles like tortoises can live so damn long.

I know there are more than a handful of characters in Morrowind that are elves and over a couple centuries old.
