Mature male?

Mature male?

Thank you for your help. Apparently I was posting pictures in the wrong section, sorry for that.

Do you think it's a MM? His body is just 3 cm long and his pedipalps are extremely little. However, he has hooks on his front legs.

I think it's too little to be a mature male regarding this species.
It's my first tarantula so I don't think I'll pair it for now. Do you think it can molt again? I want it to eat and grow bigger :(
 
Moulting again once mature is not good, high fatality rate since they are already at the end of their life.
 
I have only heard of one instance in which a mm tarantula was able to molt. Yes he is 100% male and fon’t be shocked by their soze difference, look up species like haplopelma or pterinochilus and the size difference between a mature male and mature female is absolutely shocking.
