These are pretty easy to tell apart when they are adults am I correct? Even without looking for the telltale signs they are quite different from the photos I see. I am asking because i have an adult female and i wanna breed her with an adult male.

Jacen,

What do you mean by easy to tell apart? Are you talking about visually sexing them without a molt? Or are you asking if a mature male A. seemanni looks different from a female? Up until a males maturing molt, it will look much like a female coloration wise. The color difference does not happen until the maturing molt.

That is what I said. I want to know if you can sex them based on just looking at them once they are adults. All pictures I see, the male looks completely different.

The male only looks different colorwise after the maturing molt. Up until that point they're pretty much the same aside from the legs being a little longer looking and the body size being smaller and more streamlined.
