No, but a little reasearch or, a molt skin I could. Depending on how big it is, if you could get a "undernealth" shot, it should be easy to tell from the entries in the Forum. Good luck and I will monitor your progress for future reference.

I think this species you can sex them on the shape of the abdomen. Depending on the size (up to 4 inches) females have a paler/lighter middle stripe.

Excellent!

Adults are pretty easy to sex; males are quite a bit smaller and have a different patterning on the carapace.

And you may want to wait a while before you try tackling breeding this species. You have to open up the tank so they think they're on a tree trunk and not enclosed. The males' drumming is ridiculously loud (if you guys want I can upload a video to YouTube from my phone).

Example of mating: link

(Disclaimer: only the male was handled, and that's only because he was running all over the place and is, frankly, a lot less intimidating than the female.)

The pictures of the male and female are in the link in my last post.

Here's a video of the male's drumming; if you get a mature male you'll probably hear this when he's feeling lonely Wink.
