I saw someone mentioned in an old thread that A.minatrix can grow about 3" and more hardy than other avics, so I want to know is it true?

3" or so is tops for a female, as for being more hardy than other Avics I personally don't think there is much difference. One thing to add the slings are TINY compared to other Avics about half the size. If you able to grow other Avic slings, as long as you can provide it with correct husbandry/enclosure with small enough prey, it shouldn't be any harder.

I've raised several A. minatrix. I find them to be the easiest to raise of all. I have an adult female I raised from a sling, she's gorgeous, maxed out at 3" DLS. They are excellent eaters and grow very fast! For disposition, I put them between A. metallica and A. versicolor.

They are bred but not frequently, hold their value as slings as well. usually at about 40-45$ for 0.5-0.75 slings.

They are the only known Avic that maintains the tiger striped abdominal pattern into adulthood.

No Avics are really that visible, more often than not they hide in web tubes or canopies, often covering the walls of a container with dense webbing.
