I have a newb question but what and where are the hooks and boxing gloves I keep hearing people talk about? Also, are they reliable for sexing and at what maturity level should I start looking out for them? (pics would be awesome if possible)

When your male molts into maturity, on the back of his pedipalps(the front two leg-like appendages) he will have a tear drop shaped bulb where the point of the drop forms a hook. He uses this organ to transfer sperm to the female.

As far as determining sex by seeing those "hooks and gloves" if you see those on a T its a mature male. His only goal now is to mate and mate alot then slowly he will run out of energy and pass away.

If you want to get a good sex on your T just sex it by the molt some species dont even get the hooks so dont always look for that.
