3” p.metallica freshly molted
Just a beginner tip on vent sexing Poecilotheria: It's better to wait after they hardened up from a molt to ventral sex them, because the male spot/mark is hard or barely visible to see if it's freshly molted. So basically when a Poecilotheria is freshly molted, almost all the time the ventral is going to look female despite it being a possible male, since the male dot/mark is barely or not visible at all. So in conclusion, it's to early to jump to conclusions just yet since it's freshly molted, so give it some to harden up before ventral sexing it.
 
Like Liquifin said, harder to sex freshly molted Poecs since the dot isn't as easy to spot. However, I'm thinking male, because I'm pretty sure I can just spot the hint of the dot at the center of the furrow. Still, try posting another after it's had a few days to harden. :)
