Please help me figure out the sex of my Pandinus Imperator. At first i was excited and thought it was a Female... since the operculum had the shape, sort of, but it appears to be upside down when compared to another female. I really dont know. I WANT it to be female but i am really not at liberty to make my judgement. Could any of you check this picture out and arrive at a consensus for me and voice your opinions? I would really appreciate it!. Thanks all!!

i knew the pectines would be the deciding factor... darn. wanted a female so bad. no big deal. i have 4 others ill toss up here, theres one that has small pectines but the shape of the operculum is kind of tough to make out. ill check into this a bit later
