Huge female Betta fish?

Okay so my friend's mom went to WalMart and bought her a female Betta. The Betta is huge and already looks full grown. Do you think someone might've returned her as an adult or do you think she is just a very, very big girl? She is bigger than any Betta I have ever owned and she was just purchased about five days ago. Sorry I can't get any pictures. I looked up pictures and I believe she is a Round Tail.

You know she might be a king betta...she might even be a he, like a male plakat or something since plakats are often bigger that other betta's to begin with...does she/he have an ovipositer(little white spot on her belly) Thats a pretty good indicator as to whether she is actually a she...if it is a girl than she is probably a king betta since petco does carry that strain

She is definitely a female - has the white dot. I'm thinking she might be a large Round Tail because that is that her fins look like. I've never heard of a King Betta before. How big do they get?

That image is a little deceiving since since the normal sized betta is facing the king some, so it looks smaller.

I made a video of my HM king betta and Glorfindel my HM plakat that I think shows size better.
