Hi!
Age is hard to tell for sure, but I'd guess about 2 years. She is what's called (more commonly than other names I suppose) a "Malaysian Giant." Scolopendra subspinipes sp. She's a nice looking pede, keep her cooler (in the low to mid 70's) and you'll be good to go. :)

IMO; to make this kind of "guessings" can create a false spectative of life (more or less time than we think)... So I prefer not to play:eek:

Caco wrote his response in such a way that it sounds like your animal has another 6-10 years to live. I'm thinking he meant total, in which case your's may have a couple left. I'd be surprised if it lived more than two. 10 total is on the generous side, 10 after maturity is bigfoot certain. I was looking for a response from him as only he'd know what he meant.
