P. Metallica Male Or Female?

It is a female because of the size of the abdomen. Females generally have a large round abdomen and no mating spurs when they reach maturity. Males have smaller generally more slender abdomens and usually have breeing spurs on the pedipalps when they reach maturity.
 
it cant be sexed intill it is larger if it is a sling. elfpunk, you cannot base m/f on size of abdomin. Spers are also not on the pedipalps.
 
Ignore the first response....they know nothing. Size of abdomen is relative to how much you feed them, not their sex. It's lookin' pretty male to me, but hard to tell for sure.
