    Sometimes you can get a rough estimate based on their tails---I say "rough" because its not a guarantee the way popping or probing is. Based on the tail though, you could pick a name, and time will tell as your baby grows

    Here's a quote:
    Males seem to have longer and rounder tails, while females have chubbier but shorter and more tapered tails. The tail of a male will be rounder and closer to being the same diameter throughout it's length, and the distance from the cloaca to the tip of the tail will be greater for males than the females. Also, males have larger anal spurs in comparison to females.
    edit** found a pic too---still might be tough, since you don't have something to compare your snake too, but I should be able to snap a pic of my pair for reference after Tempe gets here

    Popping is easy, if you want a more accurate means to sex a younger snake.

    I don't see the big controversy over using shredded aspen as a substrate. I've never had a problem with it as far as dryness and sheds are concerned, with KSBs or Ball pythons. Good luck with your new little KSB!

    No, i was waiting on a reply from the guy, and he flaked out.
    Im disappointed. but i put up a few ads on CL looking for a baby.
    Ive got some replies. But i may end up going to the reptile show in tampa in the next few days. i was told normals there run for 25.00 but im hoping i can find one. I have a setup all ready for one!
