Sexing my baby?

Postby Katherinegrace5227 » Thu Dec 26, 2019 6:59 pm

I’m having a hard time figuring out the gender of my baby bearded dragon. We’ve been calling her a female because that’s what the pet store said. I was told not to trust everything the pet store says so I’m still curious. I’ll include the best photos I could take from the angle she was at. Also a photo of her face if that helps at all.[Click image to enlarge]

Babies are hard to tell what sex --- if you can post a pic of the rear end w/ tail up in the air we might be able to tell -

Babies are hard to tell. Firstly, how old is your bearded dragon(count the ones even before you got your beardie)? You can either wait for it to be like 6 months old or you can try to use the flashlight method. It might not work if your bearded dragon is still a few weeks old(I'm not sure, I'm not an expert but I'm using the knowledge I have). You can put your beardie on a flat surface, use a flashlight and shine it through the tail on the beardie(shine it from the top). If it would be a male the hemipenal bulges would be like a "U" Shape. If its a female, the hemipenal bulge would be more like a square. If I'm late, sorry for keeping you waiting on the answer.

She’s about 3 months old. I looked yesterday and it looked as if she had 3 bumps. I then tried the flashlight method but didn’t really understand what I was looking at.

Can you describe what there were? Like were there shadows or something. Or can you take a picture of the flashlight method? If you can, great :D

I checked again and it looked like a square shape. I’m thinking she’s a female. Of course this could change since she’s only about 3 months old. We’ll see :)
