      Another Pulchra Molt

      So this is the smallest tarantula I've tried sexing via molt. This G.Pulchra has just molted into its new darker color so I'm not sure if its too early to tell or not. What do you guys think? I'm leaning towards male -which would be awesome because I have a confirmed female already.

      I'm not seeing spermathacae in these images; I think they should be plainly visible at 2". (My two females were sexed at a smaller size.)

      I would say male. I see no signs of spermathecae.

      Now we want to see pics of the boy in his new suit!

      I agree with the others. Looks male to me.
