    Default Chahoua sexing

    Hi
    Any ideas as to the rough age you can reliable sex a chewie?
    Just wondering if I have a little boy or girl.
    I got him in Feb but he apparently hatched Sept 2016 but when I got him he was pretty tiny but has come on in leaps & bounds such a little piggy. Not sure if this pictures are any help as really not clear as taken with Kindle.
    Thanks

    I have found that chewies can be a little harder to pore sex than cresties or leachies, as they tend to have very small and speckly scales. While I can reliabley sex leachies at 3" or less SVL, that has been borderline for my chewie boys. Another comparison is that I can usually spot pores in cresties from 3-7 g with a 60x loupe, but more like 12-15 g with chewies (keep in mind my sample size of chewies is small at only 2 males/2 females verified, but I have sexed many many more cresties). I know some keepers who have not been able to tell boy with their chahoua until 30+ g.

    What does he/she weigh? Those pics are too blurry to tell anything.

    Hi thanks crestiefu didn't think pictures would be of use I will try to dig out my camera & take a couple more later this week. He's not too keen of keeping very still, don't blame him I guess. Thanks for you comments though.
