@mosesobe Sure, between the first pair of book lungs and where the sections of the abdomen appear to join together (the epigastric furrow) there is a kinda lip-like structure, this is the gonoslit and that indicates that you have a female, males have a dark circular/crescent-shaped patch of hair just above where the gonoslit would be. There's some other stuff that helps but you're essentially just looking for a slit (female) or a dark spot (male).

This probably explains it better than I can.

On a separate note, all these T's seem to be calm in these photos. I've never picked mine up, but want to get a clear photo underneath it (last time I posted a photo I don't think it was clear enough).

Is there any tip to getting to stay calm & relaxed like the ones in all these photos? (Not that I would try, just curious)
 
@mosesobe, Thanks. Where or how do you pick them up? I'm assuming there's a certain part of their body? Or should they crawl on your hand first?
 
@Flashback The way I do it is I take them on my hand first to make sure they’re calm them I pick them up between the 2 leg segments (between 4 front legs and 4 back legs)
