Avicularia metallica [molt sexing]
Avicularia metallica. Is it possible to still sex this or is it too far destroyed
The moult is fine, but you need to spread it further apart between the upper book lungs. And try to dry it up, a q-tip works fine for that. And then try to get a sharp picture of the area between the upper book lungs, not the whole moult. ;)
 
Looks male to me. As @Thekla said, spread the first pair of book lungs apart. If you find a flap there, it's a female. If it's still smooth, then it's male.
 
Where are the book lungs, sorry that I sound like an idiot but I'm trying to learn about T's so I can get into the hobby.
