You can't sex them until they're mature. Males mature at fifth instar and have large chela; females mature at sixth instar, are larger than males, and have a robust metasoma as adults.

Adult male, subadult female:


Adult male, adult female:

Just like I said -- when they mature, males will have bulbous pinchers and females will be larger with a more robust metasoma.

The difference between subadult and adult in females is quite obvious. Here's a picture of a female I had with her exuvium:


Basically, when a female matures, her new tail shouldn't look like it was able to fit in the old one. Smile
