    Hi I struggled to get some closer views of my Chahoua's parts, (Lol) in-order that someone might be able to confirm if Oak is a he or she!
    Oak is about 9 months old & weighs 30g.
    I always refer to Oak as a he but I could well be wrong looking as these pictures but I am no expert in this field.
    I understand that it can be difficult to determine the sex of a chahoua & I might need to wait a while longer.
    Peoples opinions about if they think they can confirm one way or the other would be most appreciated.
    Thank you

    Ps sorry I meant to attach this to my previous post but something went wrong when u I was uploading images & started all over again & didn't realise was a new link.

    I find it very hard to pore-sex chahouas, but if I compare the pictures of Oak to the picture of my male Urmel (shown in the "swollen vent?" - thread), the region where Urmel has his pores looks much smoother in Oak, and at 30 g Urmel was also showing a bit of a bulge already, whereas I only see a skin fold in Oak.

    I remember taking Urmel to the vet at 39 g, and while I was not 100 % sure of his sex then, it took my vet one second to tell he was definitely a boy. So I think if Oak reaches around 40 g you will know for certain, but for now I would say it looks more like a girl.

    I don't know if you remember his thread, but the gecko finally decided to come out as a boy at 55 g :

          It's still hard to see if there are pores or not. But at 30g you would be able to see a noticeable bulge forming. I'm leaning female. Honestly, it is very easy to sex them by using a 60x jeweler's loupe, which is $8-$10. I bought one awhile ago and it's been one of my best purchases.

            I tried by best to get the reasonable pictures.
            However Oaks not too keen on me taking the pictures of his/her bits
            Soon as camera had focussed Oak move on!
            I'm thinking more towards girl myself.
            I will see if I can order a loupe but will take time for it to arrive so in meanwhile other people's opinions/ views about gender of gecko would be appreciated.

                  Can you get one that's further out, but still using the loupe? It's too close up lol.

                    Will try oak is a nightmare to try to take a picture of as soon as I move the loupe back a bit he moves on & all I have left is either a closeup of my hand or the chair!

                      No looks like I can't as its attachment for phone & only one setting of x60 & can't get it to focus at any distance except right up close despite moving the focus which made very little if any distance between phone & item to be viewed.maybe I'll have to give up & just to be patient!

                        Did you ever figure out what Oak's gender is? Inquiring (newbie) minds want to know :-).

                          Still don't know for sure but still looks female to me no real sign of a bulge & at a year old now. Guess I could still be wrong if late bloomer?

                            I really don't know--I have no experience with them. I have heard, though, that it can take a LONG time until they're ready to breed, so perhaps they are "late bloomers"?

                              Can you post more pictures? What's the weight? Everything that I've ever heard, said that cheeses are always hard to tell and can take a long time.
