i need some help on sexing these two cutie pies right here i ordered them on monday and i just received them. ive ordered from this website before but they separated the male in female in two different dixie cups. this time they put them both in the same container. i have no clue which one is a boy or girl. they both look like females to me but i feel the darker one looks like an old man. and they are both wild caught .

Small one is a female. I'm unsure about the larger one, but it needs put on some weight and get some water. Can you post a few more pictures perhaps?

thats what i figured. the smaller one is so pretty she/he doesnt look like it in the pictures but she/he is like a green to a yellow and i dont want to disturb them alittle later i will cause when they came they were freezing cold!

Interesting.... How big do they get? are they always brown?
they can grow the maximum size of 3 inches.

it depends, one of the two i just recieved was green to almost yellow but it doesnt look like that in the pictures.

they dont change into amazing colors like the panther or veiled but they do change colors from brown to yellow, green, but thats really it

They can be some really cool colors! I had one that had almost neon green eye turrets and a rusty body color. I also had another Massive pygmy that was bright yellow and cream colored.

These guys are both dehydrated, but I would say the bigger browner one is a female, and the little one could be a male.

I just got a pair of pygmys a week ago. The one with the more humped back is a female and the long one with the more straight back is the male. :)

the pygmy in the last 2 pictures really needs some rehydration, you can clearly see how sunken in it's eyes are, tons of misting and gut load those feeders to get em back to full health

No problem! I know it's hard to tell with these little guys, I have two females so I didn't have this problem haha.

And I agree misting and some food should help these guys get back to tip top shape.

I retain my position that the bigger one is a dehydrated female and the little one is most likley male.

as soon as i put them in i sprayed them with warm water because they were very cold they put one of those hand warmers in the box with them but it did nothing because they never shook it so it was ice cold

I still think the small one is a female. Its back is much smoother than a normal male. Still not sure on the big one.
