1st: 29 teeth.

2nd: 29 teeth.

3rd: 27 teeth.


My guess is they're all the same sex, but I don't have the pectine counts for this species.

The venom list SOTM for this species says 32-37 equal male, and 24-31 equal female. For some reason I don't believe they are all female. Although the last two are kept communal and I have not observed any mating and they are not agressive.

PEctine size and teeth look to be the same. It's hard for me to tell without comparison what sex it is but my guess is all female. Let me know if you want a male I'll send it over with your LQ.

I appreciate the offer Eddy. The poll is still going to what they are. The last two are my friends that I am babysitting. He was curious what the sexes were and I wouldn't mind a gravid H. arizonensis. If they are all female I might journey out to find another. Are you still looking for any H.a.? Any news about your shipping situation?

stuff happens right. I might be going out looking for some more H. a if I don't have a pair. I'll definitely keep you in mind.

I still think whatever the sex is, you don't have a pair. You'll see a big differance in pectine lenght and shape in this species.

putting them in a clear box is an easy method or a glass tank works better.

i also think they are all female they look just like my girl, ill try get a pectine shot of my male so you can compare if you like.
