What size?

I'm going to go against the current flow on responses and say male.

I say this for due to the dark and pronounced folio on the abdomen.

If you can check the latest or next molt that would say for sure and great reads here on the forums to determine.

I wish you the best of luck with whatever (s)he turns out to be! Truly a gorgeous T! :D

Yee i almost dare to behappy about this one:p She is still only 2,5 -3 " dls.

Extremely sensitive to light somehow.

In this picture she is very freshly molted...

For size comparison:



here she is on my hand, i have normal size hands.

Looks just like my boy, when he was that size.
I think that's male.

Yeah it looked rather female in the first photos but I would say very good chance of male now!

Nobody seems to be really sure about it's guess, except the 100% female guy. So it must be a female then since he is the only one who knows for sure:p

Well next molt wil tell I hope....

I have to add this guy/girl molted 3 times in 2,5 month and is now 7,5 cm (wich is somewhere around 2,5 " I believe)

Looks male to me. I have a pretty good success rate with sexing Pokies in person but they can be a bit tricky on the internet, lol.
