H. arizonensis has been reported to live i think 20 or 25 years
but im not sure whats accurate with them.

as for ages its nearly impossable to know unless you have the info on when it was born
and how many molts it has been through and things like that so besides that theres no real way to be sure on a specimens age.

but if you want 1 that will live a good while i would go for a smaller one

if you get an pretty active adult sized specimen snd its not banged up or real old looking
its likely to be around for a while if its healthy



king yeah im known for doing alot with centruroides sp.
but theres actually a decent amout that are communal
i dont recomend keeping any communal unless they are 4th instar or above.
if your looking for easy communal centruroides i would say these guys
c. hentzi - c. vittatus - c. sculpturatus

is there any specific centruroides your looking at ?

communally kept they are great as long as they are fed well
just as any other species that is communal you should have no problem then
just have a extra hides like 2 for every 1 specimen and feed them well your then going to be safe

for those and alot of other centruroides that are communal you should use bark chips or something like that for them
the only thing about most centruroides is that they are more night active than anything
so they hide alot but thats normal for them they do sting theyre prey so your good with those
just dont get stung they can surely put you in the hospital

but sculpturatus and vittatus would be about the same just 1 is more potent than the other

yes that is true they average about 10 years in captivity from birth

the only way to get them to live as long as possable is to mock the natural enviroment
even the weather and seasions play a part in that but thats what i have learned over the years
if they dont stress and have a cooling period and all they do better for some reason
