I have a few deathstalkers that I've kept for a few years and i'm really having trouble determining the sex.
My guess is this one is a male. any other opinions? sorry for the bad picture. Tomorrow I plan on having a helper hold it for me while I try and count the pectinal teeth with a magnifying glass lol

Yes that is a male. Males have longer and closer set pectines. I look forward to your pectine count results.

yes I agree, the males have longer pectines closer together. Females will have shorter pectines.
