if the was a female one would of seen the was"half moon" smiling through with th light front behind.

if you can post a picture like the first picture in your first post focusing on the area between the front book lungs. your camera seems to be be fairly good this will also make it much easier sex.

I have to agree with Jake at this stage, although I would have liked to confirm your hopes. I am not seeing the little "flap" that you should be able to lift with small tweezers at this size. The spermatica is also not visible, which should have looked like little feelers behind the receptive flap. Thing with these photo's is the observer can't turn it about to see clearly what you're looking for.

If you will indulge us further, like Jake said, turn the skin to the following position : inside upward , in other words looking down at the inside of the skin with back lighting. Let the carapace side be to the bottom of your picture and the spinnerets to the top.

This way the "smile" should be as you would draw a picture and the spermatica should be visible.

Vixen, no need to take more pictures, got my friend to come and look. Took him all of two seconds to say male and show why. Attached is a quick drawing he made, with the deciding factor being the clutch of hair (minature spinnerets) above the gonopore, used for making spermweb. Females would be almost bald here. Believe me, if it was female, we would not be scratching heads like this, it would be clear. :(

Like I said. I am not the most knowledgeable keeper.

Pleasure Vixen, still a nice T that will give you a good 5 years of keeping.

Shaun buddy, we all learn all the time. Even a common T can make you scratch head sometimes. Once you know what to look for and just when you think you know, they make you uncertain again. Takes time to be self assured. We were looking for signs to confirm what Vixen wanted to hear , but those were not present.
