    Help....

    Hi all,

    I'm just looking for some help in confirming my dragons gender, when purchasing I was told He was male but I was also told that it was difficult to determine for sure because he was young and that it will be easier the older he got.

    So I have read and looked at pictures of Male and Female dragons but im still unsure ??? I'm now leaning more towards he actually being a she ...and that I may have a girl
    I have read that males have larger femoral pores and 2 bulges in the base of the tail ( hemipenes ) and females just have a smooth or 1 central bulge near the vent.

    Could a trained experienced eye look at some of these pics and help me settle this matter, thanks for any help with this...

    It's pixelating a bit on my phone but try using the flash to take the photo and make sure the few centimetres below the vent into the base of the tail is where your lens focuses. Once you get the hang of where to look and what you're looking for it's pretty easy on most.

    Thanks guys, I did think it was girl going by what to look for. Looks like I can now officially name her...

    Is there much difference in overall size between the genders, Iv'e read that males tend to be bigger

    No, gender makes no difference in size. My biggest central is a girl, she is a monster
