    Question Chahoua sexing

    I can't for the life of me figure this one chewie out. I swear sometimes I see pores using the 30x loupe, I don't have the best vision and my hands tend to be on the shaky side so it's a challenge. Also I really want this to be a female so I kind of feel like my minds playing tricks on me! These pics aren't the best, kind of spur of the moment, but maybe you guys can take a look. This is Kani at about 22 grams.

    I would say female... But I hope others will give their opinions too!

    Here is a pic of a male... so you can see where the pores are, and how they look... this is a picture of when he was bruised, and battered! *He's much better now*

    Oh, and he's 57 grams... and an adult.
    The pores are the DARK spots that you see very clearly on the right hand side of the picture.

    While its hard to say for sure based on the pores in those pics, at that weight and the fact that the bulge is pretty non-existent I would also say female.

    Does anyone else have pics of pores on for sure males? The pic in the rhac bible, IMO, is not all that great, and I have not seen that many examples posted on the web.

    I'll go take some pore pics from my guys to show you all... sorry that my other pic was not that great... but it wasn't a "pore" pic, it was a boo-boo pic.

    Oh wow yeah females and males are clear when they are big enough to tell. About what size is a good time to try and sex them? I know they have to be bigger than most Rhacs but how much bigger?

    I believe they can be sexed at around 15 grams... but I will have to double check on that. I learned to sex them on pretty young (about 5 month old) chahouas.

    Its odd how that works...you would think that like Gargs and leachies they could be sexed younger than cresties because they are so much larger but it would seem not. Oh well. =)

    Sushi...

    Can you please try again with the pictures... what I did was hold the gecko under a lamp, no flash on camera, and just tried to hold them still the best way I could.

    I don't think I see pores on your gecko... but I want to make sure!!! Just as I'm sure you want to know for sure as well!

    Thanks for those pics, its much more obvious on those then other pics of males I have seen so far. Nice to get a more solid idea of where the pores are exactly and how the rows look on chewies.
