xebo Trying to sex my 1.5 to 2" versicolor sling. Did an examination of a moult a while ago under microscope and was leaning towards female. Now at this size using macro lens and I'm feeling more confident at female. 3w
  •   xebo @andrea.arachnid I'd like a second opinion if possible please. 3w
  •   andrea.arachnid I kind of think male. However, I'm no good at ventral sexing. It's not accurate. Your best bet it to wait for it molt. That's the only accurate way to tell. 3w
  •   xebo The last moult was too delicate and I didn't have my dads microscope at hand. It only moulted last week and the abdomen still has some filling out to do. I'll try another macro in a couple of weeks and see if I can get it to stand still on something more transparent and less scratched so I can get a clearer photo. Failing that, I'll wait until the next moult and borrow dads microscope @andrea.arachnid 3w

  •   lord_tentacles Omg, that's so cool! 3w
  •   xebo @lord_tentacles isn't it 3w
  •   lord_tentacles I need to find out more! What the species? 3w
  •   xebo @lord_tentacles Avicularia versicolor 3w
  •   lord_tentacles Thanks mate. I'll have a mooch about after work and read up on em! 3w
  •   xebo @lord_tentacles You may read that there is a high sling mortality in Avic species, because they're arboreal and from the Caribbean people think that they need high humidity so keep the enclosures wet but that causes mold and mildew growth which causes harm. Good ventilation is the key, a container with lots of air holes on the lid and some around the sides just above the substrate level and lightly mist weekly until it's large enough to have a shallow water dish. 3w

xebo I've slightly over-saturated this photo to bring out the developing colours. The carapace is turning more green and the abdomen has a little flash of red emerging blending into a slight purple and the urticating patch is definitely going green with a nice deep blue halo around it. She's also getting the iridescent multicoloured patches on the underside of the ends of the front legs and pedipalps. She's gonna be a beauty!
