    I tried zooming in but unfortunately they weren't clear enough for me to tell, and the flash seems to wash out the vent area where the pores are located. Since even females can/do have pores, it's important to get some clear shots in good lighting. Here is a thread with GREAT examples of gargoyle crotch shots: http://www.pangeareptile.com/forums/...-your-gargoyle

    Your pics don't have to be that perfect but it's important to get as close as possible while still getting a good focus where you can make out each individual scale. Good luck!

    Well the male I got 2 month ago was under 30gr but had a HUGE! bulge when compared with yours. So I'd say at least the 1st looks female.. I've never had a smaller garg so canīt say anything about the others

    Yeah that's what I was thinking too the guy I got her from said she was a male but I just don't see it.

    He said she was a male because the other one laid eggs that didn't make it but I think they were just infertile

    My female also laid egg without ever being with a male so, I agree with you

    Gonna say the big one looks female. 14g one looks female, and the 10g could be showing pores but they are not well defined. Still time to mature male.
