I believe my tokay is a sub-adult. I have a few photos and was wonder if this is a male or female? I don't trust myself with sexing tokays yet.

Yes, your juvenile Tokay may still be too young to be 100% positive. Animals under 7 months are still tough to correctly sex.

Both sexes have the dimples/pours but only males have the waxy extrusion coming out of the pours which I might have seen in the first photo, but it's not clear.

You can run your fingertip over the V going from the tail moving up toward the belly. If you feel any sticky stuff over the V, It's a male. If it's smooth, It's a female. This is all assuming it's older than about 8 months. First photo is a male, the second is a female.

Good luck and all the best,

Thank you c:

I'm not really able to feel the gecko as he/she is very aggressive. How long would a adult gecko of sexing age would be?

It varies, but at least 6".

My tokay is around 6" I'm feeling that's it's female. What do you think?

It's possible. We'd need to see a clear photo like in post #2 to help, thanks.
