About 2 weeks ago, I got a new frilly that was sold to me as female. Well, I checked the dragon using the common method of lifting the tail and gently twisting it from side to side and what do ya know, the "female" dragon has hemipene buldges! I also had a guy at a local reptile shop take a look at the animal, and he also says it looks male. I told the seller about this and he told me that someone at the east bay vivarium "poped" this animal and no hemipenis was present. I talked to the vet about this and I was told that with an animal this young (the dragon looks to be about 4-6 months) that it is impossible to be 100% sure of the sex by poping, is this true?
