I would have a guess at a female as males have a VERY pronounced bulge.

I have some girls that have pretty pronounced bulges, so I generally sex them by looking for preanal pores. A 10X jeweler's loupe really helps out when you want to sex young specimens. Also, if you are good at "popping", you will have a definite answer. BTW, be sure to have a good light source when using the loupe.

Your specimen looks female, but it is hard to say. How much does "she" weigh?

i have to agree with nathan. and those pictures would work, however, the pore area is so washed out by the flash/light, you cant really make out any detail. here is a picture of female pre-anal pores for you to compair against, males have more pronounced pores with dark pits.
