    [​IMG] [​IMG] Mars is 18 inches or so now, and an estimated 6-8 months, and I was wondering if any more experienced eyes could see details about the gender better than I can. They may be a bit too young still, it’s quite a challenge to get a non-blurry photo since they don’t like staying still lol.

    IMG_0320.JPG if you feel with your finger you can feel the bump, if you don't feel a bump, he is either too young or its a female. I was able to tell Felix was a male at 6 months of age

    My apologies. Should've been more particular. When you can, photograph directly at vent with tegus head facing up, not down. I'm looking for scalation around edge of cloaca. No hurries.
