    Default Help with Sexing


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi, all. I'm hoping for some help in sexing my youngest gecko, Ico, who was born in early April 2018. There is quite a bit of patterning on his/her underside, so this one has stumped me for a while. Just thought I'd try here for a second opinion, but I may just need to wait for the bulge or lack thereof. (Haven't been able to get Ico to hold still for a look with the jeweler's loupe.)

    Sexing
    • Sexing crested geckos may be possible at 10 grams. It's much easier at 20 grams. To see their vents and potential male pores and hemipenal bulges gently press their bodies up against the side of the glass or plastic enclosure. They'll squirm if you try to turn them over.
    • Here's a male.

    This gecko is at least 14 months old, so I would say it's female. By this age, males would display at least a bit of a hemipenal bulge. I can't see anything suggesting even the slightest bulge in your pictures.
    Thanks Elizabeth Freer thanked for this post
