    Is my A. chalcodes sick?

    Hi guys, I really need some good advice. About half a year ago, I adopted an Aphonopelma chalcodes (assumably female) that was unfortunately maltreated by her previous owners.

    Mechanical mom

    easy to make with a 24/hour light timer, two 5-oz delicups, soldering iron, nylon knee-high and some moistened coco fiber. note the beads of gluestick meant to 'grip' the eggsac which will let it flip over as it rotates slowly. if you dont do this it wont rotate properly and will merely slide.

    A. chalcodes ventral sexing. Male??

    Not a lot of experience with ventral sexing, so I wanted to ask for a second opinion! Just picked up this juvenile A. chalcodes yesterday, about 3" legspan. Based on a few google searches my guess is male, anyone else have an idea?
