Shiny Girl
The first ever Arbanitis sp. trapdoor I caught last year, and the very specimen responsible for getting me into the hobby. Provided this is a short-distance endemic species, she could be one of only a few adults of the species left. Thank goodness for her cooperation with breeding. Freshly molted.
She's just hit about 2" DLS which is huge for this species. And yes, she deliberately chooses to live that close to the lid with the ring of web tunnels around the edge
 
@spodermin Ive paired her and a bunch of others I saved from the Jobsite they were from with some males that I ended up with, and am planning to release 300 slings to a protected paddock about 1km from where they were rescued. Some of those slings are from this individual
 
@Oompoofishy I have 500+ slings atm so you're more than welcome to take a few. If I release all 500 in the paddock they'll overeat all the food and most will starve so I'll be selling/swapping the remaining ones. They literally eat once every 2 weeks in captivity and will happily live in 4cm of substrate at their current size
