My B. Smithi just molted and is looking great. I managed to get a pretty good intact skin this time and it looks like I have a baby boy. Can't wait to find him a date once he molts out as an adult.

BTW, thanks to Conipto for that link to Rick West's site. Very helpful.

Galeogirl,

My adult female just molted today and I'm 95% sure she is an immature male. I'm shocked... it is a fairly large B. smithi and the molt says it's a boy, but it is still not showing hooks or bulbs on the palps. I sent the exuvium to Swifty for confirmation. If you see this Swifty, expect it in a couple of days.
