Male or Female?


New Member
I recently got a Costa Rican Zebra about a month ago and specifically asked for a female. I don’t know how to sex a tarantula, and I just want to know because I wanted a friend that I could have for a long time and females outlive males by a landslide. Thank you!!

Ventral sexing isn’t always accurate so sexing a molt is the only sure fire way to sex a tarantula (that isn’t sexually dymorphic)

I don’t know how big yours is but males can still live a decent amount of time.
