I've had my b. Hamorii since it was a smithi so maybe 3 years? Honestly I was terrified of spiders, let alone TARANTULAS but he was a rescue and i do that with lots of animals. It's been a lot of YouTube and looking at forums like this so I'm glad to finally be a part of this community! It was a confirmed male from the breeder but I'm not sure. I'm still confused about telling from a molt. He's about 4 inches, no hooks and has molted twice since I've had him. This past year he didn't eat for literally 11 months, then molted. And he hasn't eaten again in about 4 months. Is this normal lol? Also he never uses the hide or burrows unless it's cold and is always climbing the enclosure. It's all coconut fiber with eco earth I believe. I feed dubia roaches and the house is always 65°+. I think he needs a bigger enclosure too.

Welcome, nice looking hamorii

You can upgrade that enclosure at any time. When you do you can lose the hygrometer.

Welcome. If you still have the molts, there are YouTube videos on what to look for and how to prep them for sexing. Plus, there are many people here who can help if you post a clear photo.
