If you want sexing from an exo, you have to look at the inside between the booklungs -- and you'll need a closer and clearer shot than that.

If you DO NOT have a molt, that is, you're looking at a living tarantula -- you sex it by looking on the outside.

If you DO have a molt, that is, you're looking at the cast exuvium of a tarantula and NOT the tarantula itself (as in your pictures) -- you sex it by looking on the inside.

This is because you're always looking for the structures on the inside, but you can't exactly do that to a living tarantula. Thus, when looking at a live tarantula, you have to see what's visible through the exoskeleton by looking in from the outside.

I hope this clarifies things. Smile

(Please note, your exuvium is probably too dry to get a good look at the inside at this point -- you can re-humidify it by letting it float on water for a few hours. Then it should be damp enough to spread apart the region you want to look at. Here's a drawing of the area of interest.)
