Cyriocosmus giganteus Sub-Adult Female - ~3"

I am rarely able to get a decent photo of her - she is extremely nervous and runs into her hide the moment that I disturb her enclosure. I was filling her water dish and she started attacking the stream, so I was able to snap a couple of photos of her.
@John2097 This is what she looked like back in March 2018 and she is just about 3" now. They're very fast growing - the entire genus is.
 
@VanessaS beautiful! At first I thought c aueri lol they’re fast growing species. I can’t seems to find the growth rate of this species. Good to know they grow fast too like the other cyriocosmus :)
 
@John2097 This species was only discovered back in 2015. This is actually the only individual ever imported into Canada. She was imported especially for me, because a good friend of mine was a major dealer and knew I loved the genus. I am so fortunate that she turned out to be female.
She will probably get to be about 4" - making her the largest species in the genus and more than twice as large as they normally get.
 
yep another stunning photo from you. wow. love cyrios. will be getting my first cyrio soon. will have to keep look out for this one.
