P. Metallica. Male or Female?
Looks to be female from what I can see. Not a pro at this so hoping more chime in to give more certainty. I’m fairly confident in my opinion though.
 
How large is this specimen? Looks male. Also, never try to ventral sex freshly molted tarantulas as male patches are not visible when freshly molted for males, which people mistake males for females in this case. So please give your tarantula some time to harden and recover from it's molt before trying to ventral sex.

@docwade87 this tarantula is freshly molted, so don't be fooled by freshly molted tarantulas.

Thanks for the info! Didn’t even pay attention to the fact that the fangs are still red indicating recent molt.

Thank you! I will repost the picture if I see it outside the hide. Again, Thanks!
