: I don't know if anyone here can help, but I teach science in an elementary school. : After doing work with snakes, turtles and tortoises, I began wondering if all, or most female herps are larger than males. : Sorry to the lizard folks, but I just haven't worked with them.
Pythons and boas female much larger. Crocodilians males much larger. Iguanas and monitors males are larger. A lot of turtles the female is larger of course alligator snapper male is larger. The giant tortoises male is larger I'm not sure about the smaller species. Pretty confusing.
