A reputable dealer sold her to me as an A. metallica. She's blue. She's now larger than any A. avicularia I've ever seen. Those are enough for me to know ;)

I've had her since she was about 2". She's over 5" now.

I got her from Todd Gearheart. I've seen several of his metallicas in person. These cuties are getting up to 8"+! I'm dying for mine to be so big. The great part is that they're still friendly at that size. :)

I handle her occationally, but I try not to over-stress my spiders.
