Honestly, I wouldn't agree with that at all, Morelia and Probing isn't reliable. Morelia are notorious for being hard to sex etc, and growing up babies to find out you have two males instead of a pair, just be glad you got two girls.

Some Females will go as deep as 8-9, with males as low as 9, even had an extreme case of a female going to 14. I would judge it more by feel than by scale count, if it goes in real deep without trying It'd be safe to assume you got a male, and vice versa.

Id Suggest you get real comfortable with popping, baby carpets need to be popped its the only way to be sure about sexes with the morelia.

I keep carpets, lots of them.
