It's been several years since I've kept any reptiles (read: I've been out of the hobby), but I've been won back over today. I collected these in Penn Valley, Northern CA (near Grass Valley) and decided they would make for a fun project.
I can say with relative certainty that the large one is a female. As most people with experience handling reptiles know, when they defecate on you after catching one, and it's a male, the genitalia will pop right out. The juvenile male proved that point quite well, but the larger one "popped out" with nothing (looked female). I see some potential in the colors for a rewarding breeding project as well.

I'm hoping that someone more experienced here can give me an exact ID on the species so I can make sure I'm doing proper research.

Here's the supposed female:








Here's the young male. Probably from last year's brood? I love the red on this one.
