(Not So) Suspect Female P. ornata

Hound, my 2.25" P. ornata. I'm told she's female, but I'm paranoid I'll get my hopes up just for the little bugger to lose her carapace patterning next molt...
You can indeed remove the word "suspect".

No doubt its female...the species is sexually dimorphic....only a female has a carapace like that, at that size.
 
@cold blood I thought that but I wasn't sure, since I had read it was 3" where you could tell for sure and have yet to see what a male looks like at this size.

Definitely instills confidence to hear from multiple sources that they're certain she's a girl! :D
