1.0 Pen-Ultimate P. striata
He's one molt away then he'll be mature and after a sperm web, he'll be ready to meet my girl.
My juvie just molted and is looking male too. Do you have any specific way of knowing if a male is penultimate, or do you just kind of guess based on size?
 
@Arachnophoric Males and females for P. striata diverge as sub-adults, which males have a brownish color and they tend to get a more faded color scheme, while females get more white and bolder in color. I'm not saying they're sexually dimorphic, but males and females look quite different as sub-adults. Pen-ultimate is usually a guess, but I'm certain he's pen-ultimate since he's at a 5.5'' and his next molt is going to be his biggest jump like all pen-ultimate pokies going into MM.
