Congrats on the awesome reptile bro! I'll warn ya they are addictive! I haven't a ton of experience sexing beadeds or gilas yet n its really hard to do with a picture IMO. I tried guessing my own animals sexes as I've raised um and I'm clueless until they start maturing. Even then haven't been accurate.....
Easiest n cheapest way I've found is put two mature animals together in season muzzled with lil'tape n see if they get down or not. With my mature animals male combats been very apparent even though females react aggressive to the males and other females in some cases too. I did notice crazy changes in behavior 4-8 weeks after bringing everyone up from brumation...For what its worth my female beadeds got shorter stocky tails, stock pear shape builds and less girthy necks than my males who still seem to be stretching. Then again both the lizards I'm certain are girls have just exploded for me this spring. I've fed them all they want once a week.
