She should till molt 1 or 2 times (so I was told). Measured the body earlier - exactly 4cm, so roughly 1.4 in.

I believe these can grow to 6 inch legspans.. so it has quite some margin to grow still!

If you can get a pic with it next to something like a tape measure I can tell you how much bigger it'll get.
If it's female it'll just keep moulting for the rest of it's life. It just gets longer in between moults the bigger/ older they get.

If it's a female, you can easily expect it to double from that size, a male, while still large, are a bit smaller than the females usually.
These are a bigger spider than people think.

It's a female. I know nothing about sexing T's, but the friend I bought it from, has been breeding for some years and guaranteed it's a female.

She's hasn't flicked no hairs atleast yet. Very docile specimen, so docile even my wife handles her Very Happy

How's the temperament of cyaneopubescens? Do they flick or bite much?

cyaneopubescens are quite nervous and move fast. They dont tend to flick but I def wouldnt trust one to hold it. They are quick enough to strike at anything you put in front of them.

My adult female pulchripes was very docile until she got out. I caught her a few days later and now she is evil. She strikes at anything going near her and actually has venom showing on her fangs before she strikes.

I re-housed mine into a bigger enclosure the other day and now she strikes at everything too with vengeance Sad Luckily I touched her with tweezers first and not my finger like usual lol maybe they don't feel as secure in more open areas, do you think she'll grow out of it when she grows into the tank, should I downsize again or just live with an aggy chaco Laughing

Nice T dolby mate. I am seemingly one of the few that love new world terrestrials Laughing
