Though both of these guys are still changeing into their adult coloration you can see the differences between them already. The male on the left, is becomeing much darker and the female, the oppisite. Were the males purplish tone seems to be turning more charcole color, the female is getting brighter by the shed. She is also much lighter above the yellow half bands then the male, typical from what I have seen in the "Agkistrodon complex".

Heres a pic of the female alone.

and heres one of the male. This pic kinda makes him look lighter then he actualy is. God bless the flash:-)Dont get me wrong though, he still screams!

Welp, hope ya like.

All the best,
Jeremy
