I don't know. I was surprised when the guy I got mine from said his female was about that old and had laid some 30 ooths. I had figured they were all doomed after just a few months of maturity since they don't grow any more after they molt into adults (final molt). So if I take good care of her she'll be around a while. I don't think she needs to be mated more than once but since I have two males I will let them both in her enclosure just incase one of the males is sterile.
