Sorry Jeff,
I don't take pics of the under side of my T's. To much work to get the proper grip on them with one hand and shooting with the other. And through to glass pics. dont turn out clear enough to see.
Wish I could help.
BTW, my smithi's go crazy kicking hair if I even look like I'm going to grab them..

oh ok, thanks though anyway:), i would try a pic but my camera is'nt very good for detail, hmmm, i almost positive the smithi is male well kinda lol, it has no fusillae that i see but their is a tiny spot where its darker and a white dot where the lips would be? not sure... and the versicolor belly is all black and has white lines where the genital slit is/or should be? man this is confusing--Jeff

Don't feel too bad Jeff,
I had to buy 3 smithi's before i got a Female.
Were they sold to you as females?

pro-male sentiments for ALL!

hey, males are just as good..

the more you get into this, the eaiser it is to breed your own Ts (usually/generally) -- getting a male means, to me "alright, sling-time" ;)

breeding loans are usually really exciting, or just screw the middle man (no pun...) and do it at home!

however, if youre not ready, and youre really looking for a long-lived pet, then i understand :)

good luck!
how big are the Ts?
peace
dave

also, sometimes you just never know.. i think there were 2 or 3 recent posts where people thought they had a fale for a long time and the T ended up molting into a female... you never really know with some of them (unless they've laid an egg sac or have tibial hooks -- then you're home free ;) )

hey dave, the versicolor is 4"(i'm thinking its a female now after more looking but still am not sure), the B. smithi is 3.5-4" kinda slender looking also, and the T. blondi is about 3", well right now thats my goal dave to start breeding thats why i'm praying the versi is a female lol, next week i'm expecting an Awesome monster gravid female:)--Jeff
