    Default Sexing Juvenile Leo


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    This is my first post so I hope I'm posting in the right section.

    But as the title says. I'd like to sex my little leopard gecko. I don't know her exact age I just know when I got them, they had been there for a month and now on the 18th it will have been a month since I got them. I want to know the sex of my leo so that I can name them but also know for anything I need.

    sorry if the pictures are bad, I have a wiggly baby and that was when I got them to relax.

    it is a boy, in the second pic you can see a faint V shape which signals it's a boy.

    I was thinking that too but I've heard young females can also have a faint v line of pores

    Welcome to Geckos Unlimited!

    When your leo is older, this may help.

    Sexing Leopard Geckos -- Leopard geckos become sexable at about 6 months old. Males can be distinguished from females by a distinct /\-shaped row of pores above the vent and by two hemipenal bulges below the vent. To see their vents, potential male pores, and hemipenal bulges gently press their bodies up against the glass. They'll squirm if you try to turn them over.

    Nobody wondering about the missing tail? The wound looks fresh.

    We all know leopard geckos will readily drop their tail, so there's nothing strange there. A missing tail, fresh, or weeks old, doesn't have any effect on what gender the gecko is, so why bring that up? It's not a dangerous or emergency situation that should be addressed, the sooner the better. The topic is gender, not dropped tail.

    They will drop their tail if not handed carefully or when they are in bad conditions or stressful situation. I wouldn't consider it normal. The wound should be monitored as well and kept clean - moving the gecko on a sanitary substrate might be a good idea.
    About the gender - if the pores aren't visible it's a female or it's too soon to tell, it's not that difficult.
