    This is the best quality I can get with a smartphone camera through dusty plastic.
    Anyone got any input? I've been trying to get my hands on an exuvium, but most of the time it is too mangled to be useful.

    Does anyone have any pics of male and female moots from Pink Salmon Bird Eater? I want to know what I am looking for. Also, I was told by Tarantula Canada that I would be able to determine sex until sling is at least 1.5 inches? Accurate?

    I'm not sure which sp. but there are MM that don't have tibial hooks, also I know not of any female T's that have hooks. I'm sure a qick google would confirm the sp. I'm referring to.

    He's a boy, right? I can't find a flap/pocket between the upper book lungs, but this is the first time I've really tried to sex a molt.

    Do not hold an old world like this. That guy has guts.

    well I was going take pic of the molt of mi lasi fir you. But her was so shriveled even with water I tore it. No it's not accurate. You just need a microscope or a good camera to get close up in between the book lung.
