 New pet CWD

Hi all, nice site and look forward to having a good read through. We brought our first CWD a few weeks ago, s/he is about 3.5 inches body and a total just over 10 inches snout to tip of tail. S/he’s eating dusted black crickets and small Dubia roaches.
S/he is quite flighty but has already got a nice little character , same time every night s/he goes to same area waiting for us to switch UV and spot bulb off , s/he then gets comfy in the false hanging plants to sleep :)

Probably too small to sex yet at just over 11 inches ? do all youngsters have small white pores ?

All hatchling have femoral pores, it’s just a matter of time. By 11" I would think you would start to see the darkening of the pores. I know on our male I noticed darkening of the pores and before long other male characteristics begin to show up.
So... my guess is female at this point. Do you happen to know the age of your water dragon? If anything, time will let you know. At this size, I’d say within the next few months you should see signs of dragon puberty and the sex should begin to become apparent.

Hi, Thank you for the reply , I’m not sure how old s/he is exactly but we have had him/her 7 weeks now and s/hes had one shed with us a couple of weeks ago . Its more just over 10 inches rather than 11 tbh .
If it was a female would it be ok to introduce a male in at a little later date when we are sure of sex ? Are they are ok to live as sexed pairs ?

A little vid of him/her in the feeding tub

This is probably shed #2 so probably 5 months.
