Though not a close up, from that angle and distance, Female
Here are comparaison pictures I took to help people sex their hognose.
She looks quite distinctly female. I have a long tailed female who produces maddeningly long tailed females, and over time I’ve learned it’s more about shape than length or scale count.
Females past the vent \ _ /
Males past the vent | _ |
Sorry to jump on this so late Deborah but I’ve been staring at them 2 picture feeling like a fool. Apart from the white lines in the pattern I see no difference, what specifically is it that you are looking at to determine the sex?
Sorry for constantly bombarding you with questions.
Questions are good that’s how you learn
So you are looking at 2 things the length of the tail which is much longer in males as well as shape, which is very triangular with a wider base in females and more straight in males
Like anything else after a while you develop an eye for it.
Thank you so much. That makes sense now, there is quite a lot visually different shape-wise between them.
It’s really nice that even after all these years your still happy to help people with questions you’ve probably answered a thousand time.
