WOW!!! Gorgeous! drool... Mine is only 2" right now but I know she's due to shed. How large is this one?

I have 3 younger ones which are starting to become juvenile. Question is how many owners feel like thiers are aggressive as most descriptions imply and does it seem to come at later stage. Mine have not done anything yet but sometimes I am over trusting in feeding cleaning in such a small/tall area. I have all my arboreals setting together as with other like species and I forget sometimes which one I am dealing with at times (old age) "sometimers" kicks in. I am sure if I get nailed I will remember. Has anyones shown them any aggrevation or threat display.

I am aware of some owners reporting their A.B.'s to be aggressive, but I have yet to observe mine display any temper tantrums. Nervous perhaps, but not mean. These can get get quite large for aboreals, much larger than their Avicularia counterparts.
And as always, greased lightning when disturbed.
