Maybe it's my aging eyes. When enlarged (the pic--not my eyes) I see a difference in the scales, and what looks like the telltale single bump, BICBW. :dontknow:

At this point it looks female to me as well.

I feel like I see little "cat ears" at the top corners of the pouch (I notice very young males can have their bulges look like that including my Ardie, whom I am 99.9% sure is male after lots of checking and flashlighting), but when I go full view, it looks like it could just be conveniently located stress marks, in which case I would also say female.

Personally, I would suggest letting this baby calm down and get over their relocation stress (i.e. wait until the marks fade and they seem calmer about letting you handle them) before trying to do any sexing.

Ardie may have warmed up in less than 2 days for me, but to my understanding, one or two weeks seems more the norm with beardies.

This thread is about 7 months old so the dragon will be much larger ,if the O.P comes back they might be more sure now. As it is it still looks much more like a female in these pics though.

Oops! I completely forgot where I clicked in from and didn't check the dates. :oops:

But yeah, it looks like a female since I don't think the "ears" are actually there. Not that they seem to mean much because I've found photos of females having the "ears". I'm only confident in Ardie now because the bulges look bigger and I'm pretty sure I found them with a flashlight. :lol:

That's O.K., maybe the O.P will come back and confirm either way. :)
