After my "adult male" G rosea moulting a few weeks ago into a female, my A semaani that I rescued from being destroyed by the pet shop has just moulted for the first time since I got it in January this year and i'm 95% certain its another female:2thumb:

Going on a very dried up skin and the fact that i cant see any tibial hooks when it gets into strike position at the entrance to its burrow if I go anywhere near it, I'm saying female.

they said it had a "nervous disorder" because it wouldn't eat and couldn't stand on all its legs and its walking was all wobbly

Turned out it wouldn't drink from a sponge like they were using and it was de-hydrated, I gave it a water bowl and it literally ran to it and drank for nearly 5 minutes.

They were going to send it back to the suppliers to be destroyed so I said I'd buy it cheap and give a comfortable last few weeks
that was months ago and its been fine ever since.
