Picked this handy little scope up off amazon for 10.99 shipped. Just came in today. Was able to sex a 1.5" S. calceatum molt as a female with it. Very cool how the little spermatheca looks zoomed in

Where did you get it? Up until today I thought they were extremely expensive...
I got mine locally,best is to try and search the internet to see what's available in your local area. This item had helped me a lot,where previously I had to wait for a molt that would be large enough to be sexed.

I will have to pick one up. It would be could to see that close into a molt and to be able to sex them really small.

For the price its worth it. It ships from Hong Kong so do expect to be able to read the directions lol but its easy to figure out and only took just over a week to arrive.

It's a technical lab. I test products. So there's also enclosed chambers that can set into any temp and humidity to simulate any weather condition. When I see my T unwell I bring it in as well in an environmental setting same in their natural habitat... but off course I have to hide it from my boss.. ;)
