My little ball of hellfire has just flipped over to moult, so I thought I'd get a couple of pics whilst it was immobile and couldn't try to eat my face or something. :)

I was thinking female.. but now I'm not so sure. Any ideas?



Extreme close up


I've only just noticed those lovely olive greeny brown pads on the feet too :) It really is a beautiful little T.

Yeah I think it's female too, having just re-read the sexing guide on Rick West's site. I suppose that explains the constant bad moods anyway :D

Took the bloody thing 4.5 hours to moult! It's only 2" long. My A. geniculata of the exact same size moulted in just over half that time last week. Now THAT'S what I call a lazy B. vagans :)

Anyway, here she is post moult in a rare moment of peace. I'm sure she'll be back to her finger-nipping ways within a few days :)

Everybody's said it but I might as well post this to increase my number of post. I'm pretty sure it is female.
