Picked up a pair of these beauties that were said to be "giants" a few years ago. Even though people said that they didn't turn out to be as large as they were said to be, they're still a beautiful sp. IMO.

The male moulted to subadult and he is mahooosive. :) Almost rivals an adult female Deroplatys desiccata.
