Lampropelma violaceopes presents dimorphism upon maturity. The male has a emerald green color while female has the well known royal purple coloration.

Unfortunately the color is the same until maturity and so during the juvenile phase, other peculiarities are taking place, which are impossible to see from these photos.

Anyway, if the length is reffered to the body and not to the legs span, then there is a strong possibility that you have to do with a beatiful female.

The "dot" right in between the book lungs is a dead giveaway for male.

gravid haplopelma schmidti ---where would you be getting this from, these are somewhat hard to come by let alone a gravid female-

Loose the bark chips and give her enough humid substrate to burrow to that Haplopelma! :) Oh and that violaceopes looks male to me too...

oh that's not my t in that pic,that's the dealer's.i know,right:? the humidity is definitely not enough for a haplopelma.but lots dealers actually just go the most cheap way to keep them based on they can survive,such as keep arboreal ts in some very low and small boxes with some zoo med eco earth and a waterdish in and that's all.but i guess people gonna come and buy them and give them a new house anyway,so for short time it's cool.
