This makes me really happy, guys. My MM rosy was my first T, and he was already hooked out when I got him. I bought him in Nov. '10 and he has started to look a little "rough around the edges," but I'm hoping he'll stick around a lot longer. I really took a shine to the old guy. : ) I've heard they can hold out for years after the final molt, but yours takes the cake, Treibholz!
I got him from a local pet store after I'd been eyeing him for months and he never sold. He was my first T. Probably wild caught, pet store kept him on really wet, like condensation above the soil line kind of wet, substrate. But I did a lot of reading and I've had a lot of luck with him. He never eats very much. I think most people have said a cricket a week or so, but he would never eat that frequently. He likes 2-3 crickets every couple of months. Seems like all rosies have a thing against rule following. Maybe his light diet has contributed to his life span. I'll be pretty sad when he finally dies, but hopefully he will be around for a few more years. All of what I have read has said that we still have no idea how long rosie males can live in captivity. Here's hoping for a couple of outliers!
