:I can't help you sex your leachie but here are some pics for you to compare with. I think that your leachie should be sexable at that age, I THINK I have read that henkeli's mature at 2-3yrs and GT's at 3-4 yrs in captivity.
I am very interested in seeing pics of the CF's. That is a real find.
:Here is my GT male
:Here is my juv PI henkeli. In theory this should be a female because of temp dependant sex determination during incubation but I have to wait another year or so to be sure.
:I'll be getting 2 subadult pair of CF leachies this weekend, If you think it would help you I could take some pics of their bellies too.
:Hope this helps.
::I have a P.I. Leachianus, 27 months old. He was sold as a possible male, but I'm not too sure right now. Since most male Rhacs tend to be obviously male from a mile away, it seems Oscar isn't all that gifted - yet? Some of the pictures I've seen of male leachies show way more bulge than Oscar has. It doesn't help that they have that screwy looking tail, making it even more confusing to sex, and I don't have any others to compare him with. Around what age should it be easy to tell boys from the girls? Since they mature so darned sloooooowly, maybe it's still too early to tell? I could try to take some pictures but he's not as easy to manhandle as a leopard gecko, so I haven't even tried to get some down-under pictures yet.
