A. seemani

I had to change out the substrate today and got a couple pics after he/she did a couple laps around my bathroom. I heard they had speed but it took me by surprise lol. Anyways doesn't this look more like a female with the coloration?. From all the pics I have seen the males look kinda drabby.
The only surefire way to confirm sex is a molt. But if it climbs, you can try and ventral sex it.
 
A. seemanni are not a sexually dimorphic species, and you'll only really see any visual difference in them once the male matures. I agree with Jman, if you want to try getting a ventral/belly shot and post it so we can take a gander at the sex, myself and others would be glad to chime in, but the only way to be 100% sure without a doubt at this age is whether or not there are spermatheca present in the molt. :)
 
Also, yes; A. seemanni are fast little buggers! More speed than most might expect, my boy Bluestreak lives up to his name when he gets startled. :rofl:
 
Most males only look drab when they mature. Up until then, they generally look quite similar. So no, this T's coloration is in no way indicative of whether it is female or not. And from the vent? Male.
