Female...

and male...

Notice the "comb" is longer in the male then in the female. Keep in mind these are not the same species, the top one is a giant plated (Gerrhosaurus validus) and the bottom one is a four-lined plated (Zonosaurus quadrilineatus). This method can be used for almost all plateds but do not think this is a rule, males can also have small pores and females have long ones etc. But it is more common for the male's to be longer. And no I don't have a pair and haven't bred any yet, though I hope to in the future!

:Yes, some pics would be nice thanks. Do you have a male and a female? Any luck on breeding? I heard that is quite hard to breed these reptiles and that most of the ones that are bought in pet stores are caught straight from the wild.
:Thanks:

::Males have what looks like a comb of femoral pores behind each back leg, the female's are smaller or absent. The pores are the same as in giant plated lizards, I can show you a pic of my female's pores if you want.
