Here's a couple of pics of my juvie P.regalis who got quite long. By the looks of it I am saying it is a male. Any experts out there want to confirm this, I would appreciate it.

Hi. It looks like I see bulbs on the pedipalps from the photo but I am not positive. Look at the underside of the pedipalps. If you see the bulbs, it's a male.

Yep, I'd say it's a male. I've noticed on regalis males they have a little bald spot (or nook on smaller males) shaped like a halfmoon below the concentrated setae (visible on the second pic). The females are completely black and the length of the furrow is noticeably longer on the females.

Cool that we agree on the male. I saw that in the picture but when I checked on the T, it just isn't as visible as it is in the picture. If there is some boxing gloves then I better start filling up my female and get some breeding a going on.:D

Hey Philth, let me see what happens with him and my Heidi. I could be willing to stud or sale him out.
