I have a green anaconda that is 3 feet 7 inches. It was sold to me as a female but look at its spurs I am not too sure it is a female. Its spurs are definitely visible. I have seen the postings on here comparing the mail spurs to female spurs but those looked to be on snakes that were quite a bit bigger. I’ve also read posts saying that is possible to sex a younger snake buy looking at the spurs, but that the size is not the determining factor but rather the shape. I was wondering if anyone cold show me or describe some of the subtle differences in their spurs. Also I was wondering how effective the palpation method of sexing a snake is with green anacondas.
Thank.
