    I have a tiger dalmation crested gecko that I got from my local reptile show in November 2017. It had to of been a hatchling, and I didnít have a scale then. Since then I got a scale and itís weighing in at 13 grams a year later, more recently it started growing a lot faster but for a long time it hardly grew and I held off on trying to sex it or even give it a name. Iíve been calling it a he. I donít have a jewelerís loupe, but I do have a macro lense and I got some pictures of his little underside and Iím 99.9% sure itís a boy. Iím just scared to say for sure. This is my first crested gecko. I also have a male and female leopard gecko so I do have a good idea of what the pores are and where they should generally be, but I would really appreciate someone with more knowledge than me took a look and tell me if itís a male or if I should wait for some more development and re-sex. Iíll attach some photos at different angles and with the flash on. Itís almost confusing because his belly markings could be confusing me for the pores? He is almost done shedding, but I got a decent view. 6E158672-F951-46B6-87E4-7546B2437E28.jpg8D006252-D5F1-459D-9900-DD4EEC5DDFBD.jpgC394F82C-3377-4137-9F9A-ACA111221E7D.jpg

    It's hard for me to tell from the picture. I haven't had much luck finding pores on the cresties (I have a a lot of leopard geckos too) but the bulges in the males are really prominent. I don't see that in your picture, but that part of the gecko's underside is pretty blurry.
