Help me sex my spider
I have avicularia avicularia. I'm new to sexing these spiders. I'm not sure whether I have a female or male. Please advise:)
@Louisfaulkner What's the legspan of the molt? I don't think you can sex this picture because of the angle and how wet the molt is, but if the molt is under 2"+ it probably wouldn't be sexable anyway. If the molt is 2" or larger, you'll want to dry the molt a bit and spread out the abdomen even more so that we can get a clear view of between the upper set up booklungs. Aim for a shot like this
