    someone tell me if I got this right. I was reading rick west's way of sexing live T's and this is what I got from it. the males have a darker patch of hair in an arch shape over the epigalastic furrow is this close to right. if not please try to explain it to me. I checked my T's and I can see a small triangle on my G. rosea which is around 6" then I looked at my 4" a. avic and it has a huge arch compared to the G. rosea. then my female G. rosea just looks like it has a slit and no arch. and while I can pick up my T. blondi, I ain't even about to try and flip it over. so I'll just have to wait on that one
