I'd say give it another month or two + then post pics again. It does look female in most of the pics but there is a slight shadow of a hemipene. Some males actually show very little until they are near the 6 month mark and once in a while it takes even longer while other males can be sexed as early as a week old..

But the femoral pores are not indicative one way or the other? Thanks again!

No you can't base it off of femoral spores, they all have them. Males might be more prominent but that's not always the case. I would wait a month and try again.

Thanks. I wasn't sure because the two females I've owned before never had any visible pores at all.

This photo looks a bit male to me. But It's very hard to tell, I Agree with AHBD, I'd give it a month or so and see.

Yes, the femoral pores are like those of a male but again, it can vary at times and a female will have them a bit more pronounced. That's why I think waiting for just a month or 2 longer will hopefully show us more. :)
