0.1 E. murinus, ~4.5"

Hands down in the top 10 most defensive spiders I own. Nasty little thing.
I just got one of these yesterday; my first sight of it was a threat pose.

I'll post pictures after I have fun rehousing it.
 
@SuzukiSwift Sorry, couldn't tell you. I got her about two years ago as a subadult. From what I've gathered online, they're a moderate growth rate.

@Ungoliant Yup. Only spider I was genuinely scared of biting through the plastic catch cup. Can't wait to see what demonic pictures you get :D
 
I bought a 4.5” Female about 3 months ago, and I haven’t gotten a single threat pose. I rehoused her recently, and she was very cooperative. She’s much more inclined to run than stand her ground. I guess I just lucked out with her :D
 
Interesting, never had a threat display from those. Nervous/speedy as heck, but prone to retreat in their burrows :)
 
@EulersK I was expecting a fight, but it was an easy rehousing. She was a bit stubborn when I nudged her into her new home, but she didn't even give me a threat pose.
