:Hi,
:I have a few c. horridus and was wondering if it is possible to sex them by looking at the tail shape? I was told it wasnt too hard but I don't really know what to look for. Anyone have pics or know of any pics online that compare male/female tail shapes? Or maybe a website with pics? I can post pics of my snakes' undersides if necessary.

:Thanks for any help.

It's more tail length then tail shape. Try counting the subcaudal scales. Females should have 20-24 while males have 25-28.
