    My B. Smithi just molted and is looking great. I managed to get a pretty good intact skin this time and it looks like I have a baby boy. Can't wait to find him a date once he molts out as an adult.

    BTW, thanks to Conipto for that link to Rick West's site. Very helpful.

    My adult female just molted today and I'm 95% sure she is an immature male. I'm shocked... it is a fairly large B. smithi and the molt says it's a boy, but it is still not showing hooks or bulbs on the palps. I sent the exuvium to Swifty for confirmation. If you see this Swifty, expect it in a couple of days.

    I guess this is what a boy looks like
