The lifespan is generally accepted as 10 years plus, but there really isn't any definite answer here, it hasn't been studied in detail. I know someone who got the same species as an adult and has had it for the last 8 years though.

That species can reach a maximum of around 10 inches in body length, mine is about 7" right now. They continue to molt and grow throughout their lives, with adults molting about once a year, it is an adult though.

It's actually very hard to tell male from female with most Scolopendra species, the genitals are all internal, supposedly they can be everted with pressure on the last segment, but I wouldn't dare try that on a live one of that species. My guess is that it's a female, as the terminal legs are shorter and more flattened compared to the ones on another I had (sex was determined after death).
