Just got told my male 1 1/2 yr old beardie is a female

Postby Cedric2638 » Sun Mar 14, 2021 8:22 pm

Hi everyone,
Sorry this question gets asked a million times I know it can get old, well today I took my beardie to a new exotic reptile specialist. He was awesome and answered all my questions then told me my beardie is quite possibly a female with larger femoral pores. I’ve always been told my beardie is a male so this came as a shock. I did the flashlight test tonight and was looking at pictures online trying to match what I’m seeing but he looks like a bit of both. I see a box like a female but also what could be hemipenes. I’m having a lot of trouble being able to tell. Could someone maybe tell me what they see? Hopefully the pictures are clear enough. Thank you in advance. [Click image to enlarge]

Can you do the same picture but without the flashlight? So we just see the shadowing on the base of the tail?

Yeah of course, here’s a few of him with flash and without. (The glare is a bit bad on the one without flash) I also took one off the table incase that helps. Thank you.[Click image to enlarge]

I feel like I almost see the two bludges in this photo that would indicate male. I could be mistaken though. I circled what I’m talking about.[Click image to enlarge]

To really see, you need to take a picture while you are arching the tail up like a scorpions tail. Don't have the dragon just completely flat. Body flat to the floor or whatever surface he's on, and tail arched up.

Then take a picture at the angle you've been doing it and we should be able to see clearer. If you do that with the flashlight trick too it will be easier.
