    1F673AD5-D7D4-4538-96A2-805523B731A9.jpeg I bought it yesterday while I was getting feeders and looking for a female H. arizonensis. The pet store had it marked as a female flat rock. I’ve thought they looked cool for a while so I bought it. I thought the only species that was kept in the hobby was H. troglodytes, so I just want to confirm the species

    You can get H. paucidens as well, but that one looks good for troglodytes.

    It doesn't look mature yet, it could turn out to be a male. Sometimes you can tell if it's a male or female before the last molt and you can get a hunch up to two molts before the last one. The tail(metasoma) segments look a liiiitle long on yours so I'm kind of feeling like it might turn out to be a male. Have you looked at adult male troglodytes pictures yet? It may turn out to look like that after the last molt.
