Aphonopelma chalcodes [ventral sexing]
Here's my A. chalcodes, Phoenix. The pet store rep said it was a male, but he hasn't molted since I got him (?) in Nov. Hoping for some confirmation on if it's male or female. Thanks
I don't think this is clear enough to really tell. Do you think you can get a better lit shot focused on the abdomen?
 
Thanks! I'll try to do another photo tonight! I snapped two pretty quickly when I saw he was against the glass.
 
@Flashback These guys are usually pretty easy to work with. If he isn't leaning against the sides, and you have an empty clear plastic container, you could nudge him into that and then take a photo through the plastic.
