ok so i have this huge male, and a half his size female...i have tried putting her in with him, tried to kill eachother, tried putting him in with her, same thing....i dont understand it...she has molted once since i got her, but i was thinking either maybe she is a immature male, or diff species...but her pedipalps dont go past her legs, and his go way past them, and they look identical...so what you think? thanks

She is most likely a he. I had the same problem with mine. When my female molted recently I noticed her pedipalps were the same length as the males when I first got him. Although I was convinced it was a female, it turned out to be male. Wait until they're the same size to try to mate them. That way you're positive on their genders.

yeah i have thought about that...thought maybe she looks like a she cause she might not be mature....she doesnt seem to be growing at all though...i dunno...i do got 6 little whiplets though, and im gonna raise them together, so if everything fails between my two bigger ones, then i still have the other 6...
