When determining gender, there are a number of methods. Probing can be in error, all the probe has to do is penetrate soft tissue and the reading will be wrong.
montane kings are so easy to evert. And so telling. If it pops, its a male, if it has blood spots(little red spots) its a female. You can also feel the hemipenes.
Also all these kings can be reproduced without hibernation or brumation. Its much more dependable when bromating, but its not necessary. ITs just not a tool to determine gender.
Tweeners are relatively common in captivity and nature, with many species of reptiles. In most cases they are undeveloped males. Consider, Dna, only tells the body to produce and deliver hormomes at a certain time. If the body fails, then you see tweeners. Best wishes
