      The visualization if pores and a telltale bulge behind the vent are both positive indicators for male geckos, so it's easier for me to distinguish males. Females are identified by negative findings-no pores, no bulge. I find it harder to be sure. I'd suggest that if the gecko is more than 20g, and pores are present then you can be relatively sure that the gecko is male. How much does your little one weigh?

      Adding photos to the forum is accomplished by tapping on the icon with a tree and following the prompts given. Hope this helps.
