Jacen,

I'm not sure in regards to your questions, but have you tried to sex it yourself? If not, you may want to try it before sending it off to determine if you were right or not. I was able to sex my T. blondi, but the exuvium was about 5" so I don't know that it was any great accomplishment. I think I've read someone said they have to be at least 2-2.5".

Hey Jacen,

The info you want is on Kelly Swift's website itself: www.swiftinverts.com . Go to miscellaneous, there you will find 'free tarantula sexing'. The spider has to be at least 2"
