Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens [deceased]
Thanks in advance for your time and brains . Thinking a female?
I'm sorry... did you pick it up and take a picture as it was attempting to molt? Because that's what it looks like.
 
That's a female - the other, and more important question is whether that female is still alive after being picked up during molt... unbelievable.
 
@Alienwiredgirl I'm confused. Why would you post a dead tarantula in a sexing gallery - and without mentioning it? I'm sorry I drew the wrong conclusions, but it would have never occurred to me that someone would like a dead tarantula sexed.
 
@Alienwiredgirl How could we have possibly known that it was dead? And further, how do you know it's dead? Unless it's been like that for upwards of 72 hours, I'd leave it be.
 
@boina sigh. I understand your perspective, however asking questions before jumping to conclusions goes a long way. This forums main existence is to learn from one another, (the unbelievable comment was unnecessary.) I’v had my little guy(girl) for about a year and a half and have grown attached. I’v spent this whole time wondering what sex it was because (she) was always destroying her molt and this molt would have finally told me. I’v had her since she was just .75 . In the spirit of satisfying my curiosity and turning something super sad into a learning opportunity before I cast her, I thought I’d ask. Sorry if that’s so “off” for everyone.
