Male or Female?

Recommended Posts

How old is it? Looks to be about 1cm? I'd lean towards female altho it may be too early to tell.

Whatever it is - beautiful colouring!




Thanks yes it is very beautiful. To be honest i have no idea how old it is etc. I spotted it yesterday. I think its just under 1cm in length. U think i must wait another week or two and monitor it?

If it's around 1cm then it is still a juvenile and too early to tell for sure. There are a couple of ways to tell which are the female ones when they get to about twice that size - the appearance of a saddle and a rounder underbelly. Males tend to stay smaller than the female and have a flatter underbelly.
