Hello there, I replied to this earlier, but for some reason I no longer see it in the feed. So if you didn’t see it before, I suggest trying the flashlight method. In a dark room, hold up the lizard under the forearms (armpits). Shine the light from the dorsal side just above the hip joints, through to the ventral side. Inside the body, you may see the shadowy shapes of the elongated hemipenes. There will be two, one on each side of the ventral midline. The stronger the flashlight illumination, the easier this will be to see. If no hemipenes, the plainly it’s a girl.
