Hi

They would've replied already if the pics were good enough, I think. Maybe you can have better luck with responses posting in the "sex me forum" in a separate thread ;) Good luck for females!

I'll bite with the guesses but I think even the "experienced keepers" will tell you ventral sexing isn't always fool proof. Only way to be 100% sure is just waiting for a molt.

P. fasciata

1#Female
2#Male
3#Female

P. pederseni

1#Male
2#Female
3#Male

P. regalis

That's all well and good, but if you'd read the title of this thread and look at the other posts in this thread, you'd see that this thread is for dorsally sexing Poecilotheria ornata's. You might get a better response posting your pics in the "Tarantula Sexing" section of the board.

I don`t understand...

I need some opinions to know whitch are females and witch are males...
He mean that it would be only a guess to sex your Poecilotheria ventrally;)

Only real way to sex them is under microscope with a exuvia;)

You also can be pretty accurate with some species in sexing some sub adults and adults with the colors and the folio on the abdomen.
