    What sex is this?

    I think this is a female but I'm not 100% if someone with more experience than me could help out I'd be very thankful. I can try to get a clearer picture if needed

    Sexing my Avicularia aviculara.

    I can never get a hold of a molt of this fella as they always end up shredding it. But they’re about “2”-“2.5”inches in size. I got a good pic of them up against the glass and was hoping someone on here could help me sex them. Hoping for a female but I don’t know what to look for.

    Can anyone help sexy my baby? :)

    What do you think the sex is?! - Here’s my roughly 1 year old C. Versicolor! The breeder tells me it’s much easier to sex them based on the molt but I don’t have the recent one! He said if he had to guess he would think female. What do you guys think? - Thank you SO much in advance! This is my...

    Is this a female G. Pulchra?

    When I purchased Ungoliant, I specifically asked for a female and was told they were 99.8% confident that this was one. Could anyone confirm? She is currently a little more than 2" diagonally.

    Sexing Xenesthis Sp. Blue Molt

    Well. I finally got a Molt but the thing is, it wasn't in as good of shape as I hoped. I was able to scavenge some pieces and after 30 min of observing the soaked exoskeleton under a magnifying glass, I finally found the part that I'm looking for. I think. Well anyways, here's what I found and...

    Sexing a Green Bottle Blue Molt

    Ello chap, the names J Blizzle. I finally got my hands on a pristine Molt of my first Tarantula. This is my first time sexing a Molt. I think it is pretty clear to me that it is female, but being my first time sexing, I'd like to get a second opinion. I have included 2 pictures of the Molt \(°o°)/

    Need confirmation...

    I suck at sexing younger molts. I don't own a microscope anymore and don't want to wait a year for them to get big enough for me to know the gender of my T. I suspect Sing is a girl but wanted extra eyes.
