Please can anyone advise me on where the best place to learn how to sex snakes is? Or even better is there anyone who would be willing to teach me? I have read the theory of popping and probing, but do not want to attempt either until I have had some proper instruction as I don't want to risk causing an injury.
Cheers

Try a local reptile shop or maybe vet? Although vets may charge and the rep shops may charge you a small fee. : victory:

Can anyone recommend a rep shop/vet worth trying near Methley (Leeds/Wakefield)?
Not sure sorry. Try ringing a few local vets and see if they have a reptile expert. : victory:

well how do u think everyone knows the sex of their hatchlings?! GTPs are the only species i know of that cant be sexed for the first couple of years. I dare say there are others too, but i think the majority can be sexed straight away.
