Most T's that aren't desert species can live 3-6 years as a male. In contrast, a B. smithi male could live for 6-8 years, which is a long time for a male. I'd say it's about 1/3 of the female's life span, give or take a year
Thanks all. A lot of the info out there made it seem that all males were seasonal. Of course I realize too that captivity is not seasonal. I find it cool that sac mates won't normally mature at the same time. Almost insuring that inbreeding won't occur. I am generalizing of course.
A LOT of variables. OW vs NW, individual species, husbandry, etc. Some OW males can mature by one year of age. Some NW species can take up to ten years from emergence to maturity. How long they live after maturity is extremely variable as well. Some may die at their maturing molt. Some may get eaten during first breeding attempt. Some may live long enough to attempt and even survive a post ultimate molt, or even two. I believe NW terrestrial males hold the record for longevity post maturation. The longest I've heard of was about 4.5 years. So, some individuals may only live for one year total, others have potential to live close to 15 years.
