I don't know they're cheaper
You apparently don't know this. Mature male tarantulas have the shelf life of milk. At best they live two years, but usually a lot less. They largely stop eating and they wither away.

Thanks for your tip. I knew they didn't live long but I didn't know they lived that short. You just changed my mind :)

There are a lot of variables that affect lifespan...species, gender, temperature, feeding frequency, etc. As a very broad statement, many male Ts live to about 5 years old, and many females can approach 20. Some can live longer or shorter than that depending on the factors at play, but there you go.
