Many people will indeed sex them, as sexed females can and will sell for much much more. Profit isnt really my intetest, id rather a) get rid of them and b) be able to offer them for a lot lower prices to people. Most businesses dealing in ts will sex thier juvies because thats how they stay in business. I know @EulersK has sexed tbe ones i sent him...its just a matter of investing in the right magnification tools.At that size there is no way to guarantee the sex of the tarantula unless you use a microscope to examine the genitalia of a shed exoskeleton. Ventral sexing is fairly reliable, though it is very possible to be fooled.
Youre right, vent sexing can give ypu a great idea, but its not 100% and not impossible to be fooled.
