It's actually a tough call. Very few people out there have raised them from birth till death that I know of. I believe the commonly accepted time is about 5 -7 years. Could be more and could be less. Really depends on the species.

Sorry I can't give a more definitive answer to you.

Nah, the Solfugids are pretty much alone in that category... ;)

Do they really only live a year? Or is it because people don't quite have the care requirements down?

No, that's all they live. They're not a "perrenial" arachnid like Ts. They get in, they do their thing, and they get out. Very high metabolisms so they burn out fast.

You're referring to centipedes or solifugids (they're arachnids, no?)?
