 HELP Think the pet store gave us a FEMALE

I need help identifying the sex of my red-headed agama. We just picked him up a few days ago and the pet store swears it is a male. The head is a darker brown the body and the body is greyish brown with some white spots. I have read every possible thing about sexing them and am still not sure. I wi post photos but these are hard to obtain because he is still very jumpy. Thanks in advance

They definitely gave us a female. Do you think it is better to go through a breeder?

yes
in a pet store, it’s certainly always a Wild Caught Agama agama sp so often with intestinal parasites, unknow age, WC so many stress, so necessary to have more conditions to keep them for a very long time...

the breeder of Agama are not frequent and i look with my Captive Born Agama a. sp, they are more better that WC, they grow up very good and are strong. it’s always like with WC parents because the blood line is very good.

but it’s easy to find Agama agama sp in a pet store because the import system is not expensive for this species, it’s that why you can find them for a good price. and breeder haven’t many babies or sto after few years of this breeding.
