Sexing L397

I caught and sexed one colony of 2m/2f as I was selling off the spare male to a friend.

Male 10cm I sold.

Vent shot


My 11cm alpha male. He's not in breeding mode atm so less hairy tail.

Vent shot.


9.5cm female.

Vent shot


10cm female

Vent shot. See that yellowing above and around the vent? (Ignore the poop btw). Seems to be a mature female trait.


Hope this helps.

The yellow vent seems to be a common indication of sex..brilliant observation Brenda ..

Of course I will be extremely embarrassed if males decide they want yellow vents too lol.

Yea .. if no yellow i would think that last photo is a male .. kinda pointy bit...

Would be much easier if they just developed obvious male / female traits..
