Male or female?
 
3 Attachment(s)
I just got a new hatchling, and I was wondering if anyone has a good guess about whether it is male or female based on these pictures. I dont want to hurt it by probing or popping incorrectly, but Id like to give it a name to match its gender. I was so positive my other corn was a male until he laid a clutch of slug eggs, so clearly Im not good at figuring it out on my own.

Too young to tell that way......female looking but too young too tell without probe or “popping “

Yeah, unfortunately it's really hard to guess when they're so tiny. If you have a breeder, reptile specialty store, or reptile vet near you, they can sex it professionally. The reptile store near me only charges $5 for snake sexing.

You can also have the shed DNA tested to determine the sex.

Thanks. I figured I couldn’t tell for sure yet. I was thinking female, so I think I’ll go with a gender neutral name but use “her” as the pronoun until proven otherwise.
