This is my AF A. Semanni and as you can see she has 2 sets of book lungs and right between the lower pair you can see her EF and that’s how you can tell it’s a female, but on yours I don’t see the second pair of book lungs which is very odd
@WildSpider I’m sorry, I’ve never heard them called that before I’m sorry, but the first pair is the ones right behind the last pair of legs and the second pair is the ones closest to the spinarettes, in your picture I don’t see the first pair closest to the legs, like I only see one pair, it may just be the angle, if you can try and get a more clear and straight picture
@Arachnophoric dang I’m an idiot I’m sorry for trying to be Nancy Drew with the spider I see it now, she’s just twisted around the corner. In that case, as for the picture in question I’m going with male, but I’d like to see a more straight and clear picture lol
If the tarantula is on the slimmer side, the anterior (more towards the front of their bodies) lungs can very much be along the sides of their bodies as opposed to be completely on the bottom like the posterior (more towards the back of their bodies) lungs are.
I just picked her up at an Exotic Pet Store where they had her free up for adoption... in a tiny cup, not even an inch of sub, and no water dish. He (or she?) is in a 5.5 with 6" sub (Coco Fiber and Peat Moss 50/50), damp, but not wet on the bottom and drier towards the top, with a water dish and a cork log with a small starter burrow I carved out underneath. IDK what she is- very strange abdomen, which is why I am a bit confuzzled.
I'll try to snap a better shot once it crawls up the glass agin.
