difficult because of the angle, but that would be my guess as well

yeah sory about the angle but it very rarely comes out of its hide. and it never climbs on the glass so it wat the best shot I could get

Looks like a female to me. I know you said that you have a hard time becuase it does not come out very often, but is there anyway you could get a better shot of the pedipalps?

Definitely a female. Male blondi have a very noticeable (especially on one that size) dark triangle shape patch of setae right above the furrow.

It's very apparent on my 7.5" male.

Girl to my eye. At that size you'll have no trouble confirming it on the next moult by looking for the interior anatomy as well.

its about 7 inches now and I have powerfed it. so the molt could be anytime in the next year. or do they still grow fast even at that size? and the palps are normal
