Well, Patrick, if you can tell me how to keep them from shredding their molts... I'll definitely bring whatever I can salvage. :D If only they were all like my G. pulchra who leaves his exuvium looking like there is still a spider in it.

Joyce Joyce Joyce Joyce. Have you tried talking with them and not to them? I've always found them more willing to listen if you allow them input on the decision. Let them know it's beneficial to them if you know their sex. I'm sure they'll come around in no time at all. :D

:lol: I think part of the problem may be a language barrier. Does Rosetta Stone have a Tarantula program?

Joyce, bring them even look torn up. Nothing to lose and if all the parts are there, often can line them up and tell.
Patrick, I definitely will "consult" with my A. versicolors about this shredded exuvium problem. :lol:

JB is correct! Some times I'll start working on a shredded molt and after trying to put the puzzle back together with little success the piece that has the spermathecae will suddenly pop into view. Bring 'em all in!!

Oh. Okay (rummaging through trashcan for latest molt...) How best to prep them so they don't dry up and blow away, or turn rancid?

Krys,

I don't have experience with this species, but your post-molt photo seems to show quite a pronounced bump at the genital opening. I would think "female".

Would anyone mind sexing my A. Avicularia? I'm hoping female but thinking it's male... Only a spiderling so is it too early to tell? Image

KrysH instead of doing the ventral sexing thing, which is not 100% why don't you send me the next molt? Find out for sure what the sex is.

Same to you TransformerLlama.

Of the three molts I've found none of them have had the abdomen in tact... Hopefully next molt will be full enough though :]

You don't need the entire abdomen, just the part with the book lungs will do. Send me a PM when ever you want to give this a go.

Here's a shot of an H. maculata I recently acquired. All the ventral shots I've seen make me lean towards male but the tarantula's overall lighter color makes me think possibly female. What do you guys think?

Color means very little I'm afraid. If the ventral shot is looking like a male then it probably is.
