Western Hog sexing pic

Hey everyone. I picked up this little hog from a local reptile store 6 months ago. She was sold to me as a female. She’s grown a bit, and as I got her out today I looked at her tail and would swear she is a he! Anyone well versed in hoggie tail have an opinion?


The really long and thick tail means it is male. It is rare for females to have such long tails.

Sigh… yeah figured as much. Guess the hunt begins for a girlfriend.

Yeah, unfortunately a male!

I have a hog that I’m still not 100% sure on myself…. she was sold to me as a she but her tail shape says female, tail length says male

I asked people in several places and got mixed responses, so I’m just gonna raise her up. If she gets big, I’ll know she’s a female for sure :rofl:

She’s cute but very sassy haha
