Brachypelma boehmei,female?

someone told me it a female,but I think a subadult male.:(
I'm gonna say male. Generally females have a bit of a "smiley face" type thing going on in between their four book lungs on the underside of the abdomen/opisthosoma, and this spider doesn't seem to have it. I don't know how to explain exactly, but the "smiley face" type thing is unmistakeable and hard to miss.

I could be wrong however, I'm no expert, but even the experts can become confused when it comes to sexing tarantulas.

Hum how on God's green earth do you people hold a tarantula like that and not get bite...
I have to agree with that one! Must be a pretty tame tarantula!
