Aphonopelma chalcodes - sub adult
I don’t know anything about sexing spiders, the seller said he was pretty sure she’s a female. Would anybody be able to shed any light on this please? Thank you very much :)
@grammastolla54 so she’s a female then. That’s great news, I’m not planning on breeding her it’s just nice to know that all being well I’m going to have the gorgeous girl for a lot longer. Thank you very much. xx
 
there are videos that help with these as well.. males are easier for me to see but sometimes it can be tough.. but you have a for sure female:D
 
Thank you, I’m sorry to keep pestering, but what is it that makes it clear? Is it the pouch opening? I understand a little from a video I just watched! They have two little sacks called spermiciae or something like that in there that store the males sperm. Thank you again.
