ive seen on care sheets that the life span for female brachypelma abopilosum is 3-10 years, and for males are shorter. how short is the lifespan of males as per your experience?

Brachy's are noted for long life spans; I've had a mature female (WC) for about 8 years now, and have a mature male that is 1 year past his maturing molt. He still eats on occasion.

3-10 years for a female? I have a 2 inch, 4 year old unsexed B. albopilosum. 15-30 years is a bit more realistic to me, unless you're putting TGH in their crickets.

It's funny how long they take to mature and how long they can live . Everyone that I've ever owned ( especially the one I have now ) have all been very active and fantastic eaters . You would think that they would grow like weeds and not redwoods .

Well lifespan would be the whole life from sling to death and not just maturity to death.

It all depends on how the t's are kept! as far as temp & humidaty goes!
But avarage life on B Albo female 15 years! males normally mature at about 2 years then live about 10 months there after!

Sweet! hope that helps!

Our male matured in two years and he died when he was 9 months and 2 days postultimate.

Straight A's:

Well, they do Not grow quite as fast as Weeds *chuckle* but are widely agreed upon to be the quickest Brachy to maturity, along w/ Vagens....

I just acquired some healthy slings from ''Snakefox'' *smile* and will track their growth....like Redwood rings *wink*.
