    Ventral sexing my Tapinauchenius Violaceus

    aphonopelma johnnycashi dimorphism

    I have been unable to find information on the sexual dimorphism of a johnnycashi. I understand as adults it’s quite clear but when do the differences come to light?

    Need confirmation...

    I suck at sexing younger molts. I don't own a microscope anymore and don't want to wait a year for them to get big enough for me to know the gender of my T. I suspect Sing is a girl but wanted extra eyes.

    Hello! I’m new to the hobby and just bought an Aphonopelma Seemanni juvenile from a local pet store! My question is: Are there major coloration or pattern differences between a male and female? Or will I be waiting for a molt to determine gender? I would try ventral sexing but I’m too...
