P. cancerides sex?

I saved this little thing from a pet store yesterday and as you can see, it looks starved. Wondering if anyone can help with possibly sexing this guy/girl for me. It's not to big yet with a rough 3" leg span. Looking forward to getting it back up to good health.

      I think i see male parts in the glare between the upper booklungs but I'm probably wrong :bag:
      Thanks guys lol. I'll try and get a better picture. I don't think its been to long since its last molt as there was a molted in the enclosure it was in at the pet store. The same molt was there the last time I was in there like 3 weeks ago and they didn't even know which told me they didn't care for their inverts good. Hopefully I can get a better picture after it eats and puts on some size.

      @TN ANTMAN Glad you picked it up, give it some water and a good meal. I'd lean female but it's a little hard to tell with the abdomen the size it is. Get another pic after it plumps up, might be a little easier to sex then.
      Ghost56, nice to see another Tennesseean lol. But yea, that's exactly what I plan to do. It was so hungry that even moments after rehousing, it had no problem accepting a cricket. I would had gave it 2 but didn't want to press my luck with just getting it set up.
