4" Avicularia avicularia [ventral sexing] [3/6]

4in A.avicularia
it looks female but the pic isn’t very clear. only need to see between the book-lungs, try to get a better pic cuz ventral sexing w/avic’s is difficult.
 
I did post a couple close-up ones of her earlier you can go take a look at.
Looks female 80-90% I'd say, but you can't see the actual fusillae. I do think I see a flap tho!

If you get a chance to look at alrdy sexed avics in-person, it'll help your eye find the shapes. I have 25 species and the avic/caribena/ybyrapora are fuzzy and trickier I think. Sometimes when avics are arching back, like when they're in the corner of the cage, you can see a pretty clear opening w/a flashlight.

Hope that helps, my first was an avic and I didn't get any answers afa gender b/c of bad pics myself lol but i learned to do it myself pretty confidently. Just google and then try to practice on live spiders, once u see what you're looking for you'll get it.

Thanks. I just uploaded 3 more pics using a flashlight lol if you want to take a look :) What about my T.albo? I posted some of it earlier too. I can tell with some species, but these are so dark and fuzzy haha.
 
I'd say female on the curly hair too but can't make out the individual hairs around their privates, which is the detail you need to see epiandrous fusillae 100%. But I'd say 2 females. The flap opening is pointing towards their bum, so for your own research, shine the light down the abdomen like from butt to sternum. Aaaanyways.... I've just found it easier to do on my own, you should get a magnifier! Not super needed for ventral on adults/juvies but for molts!
