What are you talking about, Calum? It's perfectly possible to sex them if you get a clear shot of the pectines.

Unfortunately, the only pectine shot present in this thread isn't clear enough.

Oh, and those are NOT emps. Some sort of Heterometrus sp. -- notice the lack of granulation on the chela.

Moved to sexing forum.

cant see them clearly to sex. Put them into a glass dish and then take a picture from underneath. One at a time if it would make it easier.
And also they are not emps, agree with Mike on that one

Like connie said...put them in a clear glass container (like a mason jar) and get a clear shot of her underside...if you have a digital camera try to put it in macro setting..its better for close-up pics...

they will handle live food. Leave them a week and then pop in 2 crickets, if they are hungry they shall eat it. They might have just become lazy because they have got used to not trying for catch and kill the food item offered.

Well the fat one will probably molt so that's a reason for that one refusing live food.

If you're having trouble getting a clear shot, try putting them on a flatbed scanner.

Hold a piece of tissue paper over the flash.
