I have what I was told is a pair of sheltopusiks, but I don't see much morphological difference between the two of them. I have been told in the past that the males tend to have more of a reddish hue to their dorsal area, compared to the females which tend to be pale in comparison. If that is correct, then I may indeed have a pair. However, I thought I would check to see if anyone knew of any other means of sexing these animals.

Thanks in advance, Steve
