So I’m awful at gauging genders in babies... just picked up this little one and it looks like it is a male? Would appreciate any help!
That's a hard one given the size and it could go either way. I'm going female though, based more on the nose shape and not seeing any bulge behind the vent. BUT, it's early days lol.
As much as I hate to say it, I agree with Matt looks female. Something that does concern me though is the color of the back feet. Could be just the lighting, or maybe she's walking around in some wet soil? If not, I hope you will check to see if there is some stuck shed around her legs just above the black coloring.
So, how about a close up picture of her back leg in the above photo? I'm just concerned because it looks like there is a lighter colored band at the top of the darker color on her leg. A stuck shed around the leg can cut off circulation to the lower extremity.
Ok, false alarm, her back legs look fine. Glad to see it!
You're not swapping? I couldn't do that. I'd have to have both.Woot! Well good-ish news kinda? The store actually called stating that they did mix up since I was looking for males and had them actually separated (person on duty wasn't aware/handles fish more often than naught.) I'm hoping they are correct in all of this here but I'll post pictures of the one I am actually getting. Store apologized for not noting things down (Also these "males" are significantly larger? So yeah) hopefully they are male males lol
