Male Or Female? (Pics)

Post by CrabbyCancerian » Mon May 18, 2020 9:33 am

I took pictures of my little hermie in a plastic tank while cleaning out its crabitat today. He/She reached up very far while he/she was climbing. I figured these would be good pictures to determine the sex. I see hole-like marks but I'm not sure whether they are gonopores or just part of its anatomy. Maybe it's too young to sex? Let me know what you think! (Links to pics below):

:crabblush: ***Edit: I don't see any holes/dots. I think it's a male. :lol: (All this time I've been calling it a she & calling it a female name)

Those photos are not clear enough, nor is it's last set of legs rotated in the right direction, to see if there are gonopores.

****Update:
I got a clearer look before I was ready to put Cora back in the tank. Cora was extending out of her shell more than she was earlier. I saw two distinct little tiny dots, like I have seen in pictures & vids over the internet. It’s a girl! (For sure) :cheer:
