Well, I finally got the nerve up to pinch-grab one of my T's.

Can anyone tell the sex of this B. smithi with these pictures? I took two pictures, just in case one didn't come out. Thanks!

I want to say female, but I'm still learning.

Where's J.huff when you need him?! :D

I hear it saying something.........Ow, mama, THAT HURTS!! PUT ME DOWN! {D

Oh, and about sex, I was leaning toward male as well, although I'm horrible at discerning. I lean too much on actual shape of the epigastric furrow which is evidently only a slight part of the equasion.......and maybe much less useful on younger ones, eh?.

Hope it's female for ya, though!

Terry

p.s.- Toni, btw, congrats on your first time pinch holding! I can't find the clap icon while on edit. Sorry )-;

I was thinking male after seeing the pictures too. It's funny, I was trying so hard to get a picture while I had it in my hand that I didn't even look! {D
I have done that.. Not pinch-grab.. But when I cup a critter to get pictures ventrally.. I forget to look my self.. LoL!

Do this nub (me) a favor and draw a circle on the 'spot'... I'm lost. :confused:
Not trying to hijack the thread, but here is an example of a male.

This is a male P.cancerides with the patch of hair circled.



This is an example of a female. This is a female Sericopelma rubronitens:



I also vote male for the T pictured Toni.
