I hear the record is around 14.

Generally speaking, they take a couple / few years to reach maturity, and "average" lifespan is given at around eight years. So, if you get a WC adult from a petstore, don't count on getting more than five years out of it (my first emps made it one and two years, each).

Warmer conditions + more food = faster growth and shorter lifespan; cooler + not powerfeeding = slower growth and longer lifespan. Either extreme is not good.

I bought my two pandinus and I only had the male for 4 months! just died! No marks on him! just dead...gone....the female is still living, she has had her brood.
I think its just a wait and see thing really. You could only have one that has JUST been matured and then caught or it could have matured 6 years ago!
