    What do you guys think?

    From that photo it looks like there is a bursa copulatrix (outlined in yellow) and the spermathecae and uterus externus (outlined in red) are folded back into the upper alcove. Give this a read and try again - https://tarantulaforum.com/threads/how-to-sex-your-tarantula.281/

    What sex is my B. Smithi?

    Also, as a side note, if you pull the uterus externus down and look at the spermathecae and it is wrinkled like the one I posted above then it is B. smithi but if it is smooth and looks like this then you have a B hamorii -...

    What sex is my B. Smithi?

    Yes it is female. Spermathecae come in all sorts of shapes and sizes or can be missing altogether depending on the species. Brachypelma have fused spermathecae and so look like this- https://hosting.photobucket.com/albums/g78/wraithspirit/spider%20bits/100_4130.jpg C. versicolor have paired...

    Removing Ads

    Yes I have made my position clear yet people still keep quoting my posts and chipping in. Yes someone does have to pay and that is the owner, Josh. He knew this when he first set up the forum. If he wishes to offset the costs with donations and ads then he can. It's his train set after all...

    Removing Ads

    Yes it does but the upkeep of the forum is not my financial responsibility. No member is under any obligation to support the forum financially, whether that be through donations or the rather abundant ads. If some members choose to then good for them. Most however, probably won't. Them's the...

    Ok fair enough. I wouldn't call it me being an A ****, clearly we have very different ideals in relation to this forum but it seems the common ground is we both want this forum to do well as it is a good resource for hobbyists for the most part, so feel free to delete that post if you wish.

    Why would I pay for something I have supported for free for almost 9 years?

    Removing Ads

    Lol pay $10, consume the ads or end up on grief mode. I'll still take grief mode thanks.
