My guess is female purely on head size/shape. It's difficult to tell from pictures and I don't have a ton of experience sexing the animals in this way. I had a pair (proven) that was probed and probed correctly althought it's said that's an unreliable method of sexing. I since sold the proven pair (yeah I'm kicking myself for it) and purchased a new pair. I also have the single baby I produced this past season. I have a pair of Reticulated gilas as well but I still like the beadeds better! These guys are far more predictable and I worry less free handling them!
