Not all females do. If you're unsure of the sex there is an article here on how to do it.

If you Gerry pictures up like in the article we can tell you if you've got a male or female.

Follow along with all my beardies. Check out my thread here!: Claud's Crew
P.S. We have lots of pictures ;)

No. I understand if you allow the female adult dragon to brumate over winter, even if she never see's a male, she will likely still produce a clutch of slugs.

My Peppa never laid slugs , nor did Rex.
None of pet skinks or dragon have ever brumated , though they do slow down a little over winter but are awake each day looking for food, (water for the skinks) and basking & wanting out).
I've nearly always had mixed sex pairs who are housed separately and never allowed to physically meet (to do the deed) , they do show an interest in the other lizard (potential mate) and do courting rituals but that's as far as I let It progress.
