    First my sincerest apologies to Ziyal, for the girl's name and for referring to him as "she" for the last 16.25 months!!
    He shed last night and now there is no doubt whatsoever: These are "Sperm Plugs" at the vent of his shed skin...(one perfect piece btw). Sperm plugs are dried semen shed from inside the shaft of the hemipenes.

    Females never shed them and males do not always shed them, but if you see them, you definitely have a male!!
    (If you have the time and patience, there is no need to pop or probe, just wait about 1.5 years -- males will start to fast, and sometimes shed spermplugs -- females will eat and eat and eat and continue to gain weight.)

    The skin was 118cm long and he now weighs 216g (see for yourself)

    I'm such a proud snake-mom! (Although a female might be easier to sell, I still love the certainty!)
    IT'S A BOY!!! :-D

    Thanks! He's a sweetie too, he got a bit excited on the scale, but not hissy or nippy AT ALL! :)
