By that size a male xanth should have horns about 1/2" long. Sorry, they're definitely both females.

Looks like you got 2 females.
The horns for a 3-4 month old male should be more developed than you show in the pictures.

She looks just like my girl. Same colors and all.pic #4 looks like it could be my girls twin. But 2 girls are still ok,get a boy and he will love em long long time. And jacksons have live babies,fun times:D

My new guy looks to be about the same size as your two, and his horns are much larger. He also has visible hemipenal bulges in his tail. I didn't manage to get a good picture of the bulges though.

May sound stupid... if jacksons give live birth, does that mean you don't have to worry about infertile laying? Like other species have infertile clutches, jacksons dont go through this?

They will also drop unfertilized eggs (yellow pearls ;) ) every once in a while but I've never heard of it leading to the dystocia/egg-binding that takes so many oviparous females' lives.
