    Are the colors under the throat any indicator of sex? My CWD is only 14.5" long, but he already has a brilliant array of colors under his throat. i compared him to my coworkers CWD which is 14" long, and her's has absolutely no color under the throat. We also compared femoral pores, and while mine have not darkened, you can visibly see them, and on my coworker's CWD, you have you have to strain your eyes to see them. Do females get as many colors under their throats as males do?

    Females are comparatively duller.

    You may be seeing signs of sexual maturing for sure, but not on the scale of an adult.

    He's a bit like a teenager at this point :p

    Mine has started to develop femoral pores, and he's 12 inches now.

    Wish I could see some colors on him, but he's almost always brown!
