So sorry but this would be the clearest i could get since the female do not like to be disturb even a slightest....as you know the chela will always remain open in their agitated mode... Smile

Thread shifted Smile

From the clear shots you have provided, I can imagine how the female's chela will fit nicely when it's closed in the relax position.

Thanks for sharing!
