    Apparently you should be able to see the difference in the scales around the cloaca when they are still very young. I believe you need a trained eye to see it though. My Tegu is about the same size as yours, and I can't see any bumps or enlarged scales so I assume female, but maybe the difference is too small for me to notice.

    Sorry if that's not helpful.
