: If you are sure your animal doesn't have them (you might have to look with a magnifying glass at your advanced age!!! ;-))then it should be a female. As it apprears the trait is not species specific, more like genus specific (see post above about yellow tails. Of course, that depends on one's taxonomic convictions...

:PS: So, when are you gonna bring back one of them candy-cane hydrody-"nasties" for me from one of your forays into the depth of the Venezuelan bush???

Sorry, my slip. Yes indeed it is a male and that's the point that I was trying to make. He does not have any keels whatsoever, whereas every male eastern indigo I've seen in the last forty years has had them. Can't recall taking any special notice of keels in the other races I've worked with.

Cheers, TV

P.S. You must me talking about Hydrodynastes bicinctus. Look like nine-foot-long pink, red, and black candy canes with hoods. Aquatic, wary, and very rare.
