Confused about my beardie’s sex

So based on things I have seen online, I came to the conclusion that my beardie, Drogon, is a male. However, the vet at VCA said Drogon’s a female??? She said that he didn’t have femoral pores but I think I do see them. Not sure what to think. I attached an image to see if someone can help.

Lately he’s been digging a bit but because I thought he was a male, I didn’t think it would be necessary to get him a lay box.

yes a male and pathetic that the vet didnt know if it was a male or female -- I would advise you find a different vet

Pretty sure that I read thatmales usually have even larger femoral pores than females. 🤨

Like the others said, this is a VERY obvious male. The 2 large lumps above his vent are a definite indicator. He does have femoral pores, they're not very large but not all males have large pores and they can become more prominent as they get older.

Thanks everyone. I’m glad to know I was right. Kinda sad that a professional couldn’t tell.

On another note, should I be concerned about his “digging”? I had him examined at VCA and he is mostly healthy, just a little underweight and slightly dehydrated. I have adjusted his diet and am soaking him twice a week. I’m also giving him water through a syringe in mouth because he doesn’t drink water otherwise.
