Hey guys...so rumor goes that these guys can get to 9''...i'm just wondering if it's true. seems a little weird that while others in this genus max out at 5.5'' while one specie can get to 9''. has anyone ever seen a photo or a speciemen alive that actually got close to 9''? or a link on this subject would be helpful...thanks

i got slings from my breeder last year, and the mother is nearly 7" - yes, they get big for avics, but 9" is certainly an overstatement.

got a reply from travis, he said his female was 7'', so i guess they max out around 7''~ or so...still, for it's color, that's gotta be one impressive spider...

alice, can you point me to a dealer in germany that sells them currently? {D
