    No one knows how long he will live. I currently have a few mature males that ive bred that matured 2 years ago. I've also had males only live a few months. Being a Brachypelma I'd say you have a couple years with him still.;):beer:

    is he actually mature yet? will have hooks on his front legs and what look like hard pads (boxing gloves) on the palps. from the picture I do not/cannot see those features. if not yet mature you probably have another 2 years as long as you don't overfeed. If mature, I have 2 females if you can post (PM me if you need any advice)
