Ha, nice! One of the dark ones, what is it a subfusca?
Poecilotheria tigrinawesseli (Wessel's Tiger Ornamental)
cant tell if its mail or female
Looks very male to me, but I'm not a Poeci guy. @Metalman2004 ? Aint you one of our Poeci guys? I forget..
That looks to be a female...nice score. I've got a female also...one of the more laid back pokies I have.
Isn't that a large epiandrial arch? And the lung spacing..
This is why I hate vent sexing..
Here's a pic of my confirmed female....kinda looks the same
@sdsnybny confirmed mine with a fresh molt in front of me. I have been known to be wrong from time to time but they kinda look simular. Maybe the ventral guru will chime in....
I'll take your word for it. I still see the epiandrial arch with the notch on the bottom though. Maybe this is where I'm screwing up vent sexing. (Also I smoked a lot of pot in highschool.)
I was just sitting in my T room looking at my female against the glass as I was reading the post. I kinda see the "dot". Hard to tell if that is from the flash. I hate ventral sexing.
I guess you could say I am I don’t mess with vent sexing at all though. Poecs are supposed to be super easy but I’ve never gotten it. I might as well flip a coin because its as accurate as any guess I can give you.
That one is amazing. Getting your first pokie is a milestone in the hobby. They aren't fire breathing dragons.
Just remember, the slower you move the slower the T moves. I usually wear a ski mask to avoid accidently breathing on it sneezing on the spider.
For sexing, I'm not totally sure but I think I might've spotted fusillae, which means male. As time goes on, the colors diverge. They're sexually dimorphic.
The underside looks the same as my male P striata but not like Arachnoclown's confirmed female.
For what its worth, I see Arachnoclowns female and the other still looks very male to me. The place where the epiandrial arch is on a male is smooth on Arachnoclowns spider. On harrison's, theres a dark arch right where its supposed to be..but it could be coloration..bah!
