Poecilotheria ornata [ventral sexing]
When asking for someone to identify the sex, you should include the size of the specimen as well as it makes a difference. Your T is also freshly molted, you need to wait until it hardens up so that we can easier see what we're looking for.

However, your T looks to be a good size and P. ornata is actually one of the few sexually dimorphic species prior to maturity - by 3" you can tell the sex by looking at the dorsal. Males will have a washed out/faded pattern, while females will display were high contrast. With your T being so freshly molted, you may be better off supplying a dorsal view.
