OBT about an inch. Disclaimer: I’m new to this website, I’ve also been told (they could be wrong) that you can find out the sex even if they’re smaller than 2-3 inches. Please EDUCATE me, don’t be disrespectful. Thank you!
When it comes to ventral sexing, most species cannot be ventrally sexed at smaller sizes as males and females of smaller sizes usually have identical looking ventral areas. Usually once they get larger, the ventral becomes distinct between males and females. As of the moment, your little one is still at the size where ventral sexing it is still close to impossible as it looks as normal as any other tarantula sling ventral. So I recommend you try again once larger around the 2'' if you want to take a guess on ventral sexing. Hope this helps.

Also just a tip: Any freshly molted tarantula cannot be ventral sexed easily as males will have similar ventrals to females because their epiandrous fusillae will not have the male dark patch due to them freshly molted. People will mistakenly take freshly molted males for females most times to the untrained eye when ventral sexing freshly molted tarantulas. So I don't recommend anyone trying to ventral sex a freshly molted tarantula.

Thank you so much for all the info! I’ll try again when it gets bigger!
