Hes not too young really, though popping will probably be easier than probing. Any decent reptile shop will be able to pop or probe him/her for you.

Your snake could be probed now and this would be the only way to be 100% sure of the sex.Most snakes can be popped straight away at hatching but in some cases a male may appear to be femal if you do not do it properly as you will not be able to pop out the sexual organs.

As I said any decent reptile shop should be able to do it for you. Was the shop you bought it from reputable? If so pop back and ask them to sex it for you.

thats great. i will call them and ask when he will be in. the place i bought him was in the shopping centre in cumbernauld. they seem to have lots of snakes etc, but they sell other things too. and once you buy what your buying they do not seem too interested. so will try where you said. its not too far away. thanks pete.
