can you post pics of their undersides?

They're westerns, males have blackish blue develop on their bellies and dewlaps when they start to mature, girls dont have this

If you can get a pic posted of their undersides so the scales at the base of the tail can be seen I'll explain how to tell seeing as they still young uns and might not yet have the colour change.

Though black pigmentation is a definite male (In western species) you can prob see it on this pic




I dont have any that show you the sex by the genitalia and cant take any cos they all brumating at the mo, but if you can get them posted I'll show ya

PS this is the female, she doesnt have the black on her belly or her throat



BTW the coloration doesnt mean much, females tend to be dull but they all vary a lot in colour, I had a really pale sandy coloured male with very few spots and as you can see Arthur in the first pic is really bright and dappled. Elvis, the female is also quite bright for a female, she looks a lot like the fatter one of yours I think

I also remembered this (My friend Eve's site), which shows how to sex em. The pics are of Eastern collareds so there is no black pigment in the male, but if you look at the size of the scales thats your best bet

Anyway hope this helps

Fazer600sy- The shop said the first one was a male but i got a phone call about 2 hours after i got it home saying it was a female. The second was sold to me as a male. and if they do turn out to be two males i have a spare viv I could use for them.

Gan1-I will try to post some pics of the underside of them both but its trying to get hold of them and keep them still enough to take the pic thats the problem.

Thanks for the help.

Liam
