Can anyone tell me the best way to go about sexing baby/juvenile leachies before they reach adulthood? I have two that were sold to me as possible females according to the incubation temp. They are 6 mo. old or so and I am curious to know. As well as a tad impatient.

You can take a 10x loupe [or higher mag] and check at the base of the vent for pores. Males will have dark pitted ones that are clearly visible under mag. Some female specimens possess pseudo pores that look dark with the naked eye, but are not pitted. Browse this section, there are several threads on the subject.

My male is 8 months old (approx) and you can see preanal pores.

Hope this helps. :D
