Do you see anal spurs? That usually indicates male, but not always. The two surefire ways are take it to a good vet or snake breeder and have it probed or popped. You can’t always tell by the appearance.

Males coloration tend to fade onto the belly, while a females will sometimes cut off halfway down the side of the body. Also, a males tail will be shorter, and the male himself isnt likely to exceed 15" in length. while the Female will max out around 2 1/2’ mayybee 3’.
