 Is my rhino M or F? *Pics*

Just curious if Sam is a samantha. He is about a year and a half old. I posted a few pics. Any help is appreciated.

It’s hard to tell from the photos you provided. When it poops, look to see if anything pops out after it finishes. That would be a good indicator that it is a male. Also, you can look for a bulge on both sides of the base of the tail(underside) that would also indicate a male.

Eighteen months is still pretty early to try and visually sex a Cyclura. Your vet can help with this, though. The vet can inject a small amount of saline solution in the vent area with a syringe. If a hemipene pops out you know it is a boy. However, if a hemipene doesn’t pop out that doesn’t necessarily mean it is a girl because the saline doesn’t *always* work. So it can confirm male, but only time can confirm female.
