Miscellaneous Corn Snake Discussions This is a "none of the above" forum. All posts should still be related to cornsnakes in one form or another, but some slight off topic posting is fine.

Just another can you guess the gender post.

Hi all! Like the title says any guesses about the gender of my wife's ghost? I know the pics are pitiful but it's the best we can do at the moment. Any and thoughts are welcome. Thanks.

I didn't know blurs had gender.

Next time have someone hold the snake by grasping the middle of the tail with one hand and just above the vent with the other. You'll have better luck getting useful photos. At any rate, a vet or local reptile shop might have better answers regardless.

I can't even tell what kind of animal it is, let alone the gender.

Some good quality, clear pictures are necessary for what you are asking.

Yeah it was kind of a spur of the moment thing. I appreciate the responses and thanks for your time anyway.

It is quite difficult to tell via pics anyway... I'd say about 50/50 You're better off learning how to sex your snake or taking it to a reputable (experienced) vet to sex if it's important to you.

Some people can make a guess judging by the length of the tail, and possible hemipene bulges just after the vent. That isn't always accurate. Probing has never failed with my corns. A vet visit is costly, but try to find snake breeders in your area, if possible, who may probe the corn for you. Look up herp societies in your area too. Sometimes local rescues have a vet who visits to check on their new rescues. You may be able to make a deal to have your corn checked by making a contribution to the rescue. ( my camera doesn't take good pictures either, and there's no way my wife will hold a corn still enough. One squirm and the corn gets put down on the carpet)

As other have said it's hard to tell from the pics what sex it is, but it looks like it currently needs to go the bathroom.
