i'm assuming you mean sexing by moults? not undersides? if its moults its not really age its more the size if you have a microscope you can sex them when they are s'lings but by eye alone i managed to sex my B. boheimi the other day and i'd say he was about a 5cm legsapn

Either way, but moults would be easier. Will google it and see what my moults are telling me :cheers:

yep thats it between the two highest "white bits" lol
its ok ur not being a pain i think i asked the exact same thing when i first got shown pics:mrgreen:
Thanks again, does this apply to all species of T? As i have already sexed my Emperor Scorpion today i was also wondering if sexing them applies to all Scorpions? But that is probably a question for DarkDan.

What is the species you like? Just have to wait for all my T's to molt. Just nice to know what sex they are before i name them. Taking that into account i do have a mate whos female cat is called Dave!!
