At 5 cm???? I seriously doubt it...
You´ll have to wait until they are sub-adults or adults. You may have some trouble sexing them even if they are adults, if they are out of the breeding season, but it´s generally easy once they are adults.
Never heard of anyone being able to sex caudates at such an early age.

It's just not possible, Jake. Try to make an agreement with the person you are selling them to - agreeing to swap one if you end up with all one sex.

This is a very old thread. (2007) You're better of making your own thread, and on your thread, would you please post pictures? Thank you

Females have bigger bodies when full of eggs, males have a more "bulldog" stance with bigger arms and nuptial pads. It's easier to tell the difference between the sexes when you see them together. Post some pics, Inc overhead shots
