Poecilotheria regalis 2"
Pretty sure this one is a male.
Did you check k out the other photos? The first one seems to screams female, the second is a bit iffy, but this photo was the one I thought definitely looked male. Crazy

externals are educated guesses @ best
They are, but in this case you can pretty clearly see epiandrous fusillae in all 3 pics, so it's a very educated guess. 😉

I couldn't see it in that one like at all, that's why when I checked again a few days later and noticed I was taken aback. So I figured I get some second opinions. I was on the fence leaning male, because of the other two photos, but if you can see it in the other photo also, that's great, I'd say it's pretty solid then. Hopefully I can pull the next molt before he gets after it and confirm it. I'll post it up for you, thanks for the input

Sounds good. I think the fusillae are most apparent in the second photo, the one ending in 0238. That little round, dark patch just on the anterior side of the furrow is obvious under those lighting conditions, while a little less so in the other pics (but still distinguishable). Of course, always check a molt to be certain.
