    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    hey, my gecko (who ive recently discovered is a female...i think) gizmo was licking around her vent area / where the hemipenes would be. first time ive ever seen this and ive had her for almost two years. after witnessing this, i decided to give her belly a check for multiple reasons... impaction? ovulating? not sure. its hard to see anything on her belly besides the faint blue vein. her vent area also looks a bit swollen (i think??) as if she were a male. idk. any and all advice is greatly appreciated. see images of genital areas and belly as well as licking behavior

    My eyes say female. The licking may be due to pinworms(cause itchy butt). To my knowledge pinworms are nonpathogenic and a normal part of their gut flora. If you handle her often, stress can increase the load. At least once a year, a fecal exam should be done.

    Seems like a male to me. Licking of that area is normal.

    I wouldn't say definitely a female. The pores are slightly visible.

    Definitely female. There's no way this is a 2-year old male.

    Pores are only abit visible, but it still has no visible bulge, which would comfirm it would be a male if it did, just saying that it is a female
