Hi all, requesting a little help here with popping. Typically when I am sexing hatchlings, the difference is pretty noticeable. Hemipenes will pop on males with very little effort. In females, the white “horns” will usually reveal themselves .
Today I was going through the hatchling rack and I popped a snake. The white horns came out, but there was a pair of red spots that appeared directly above the scent glands, one on each side. Never seen this before and I am hesitant to try to apply greater pressure to see if they are stubborn hemipenes.
Checked some YT vids this afternoon and the one video that seemed to address this was really low-res and poor quality. Any input would be greatly appreciated. TIA.
