My Desmognathus fuscus
 
2 Attachment(s)
These are my two Desmognathus fuscus. I have not sexed them yet. Is it possible to tell their sex from the size of their jaws? I have heard males have larger jaws/jaw muscles.

If anyone has any insight, let me know! :happy:

These aren't new animals, I've had them for two years, they were my first caudates. Yet, I haven't been able to sex them yet. They are quite fast, and agile jumpers. Any ideas on how to sex them while restrained? I have seen herpetologists put them in plastic bags to do this. Is this a good method?

Thanks,
