Default Second opinion sexing Greater Sirens


So I have 2 greater sirens that i believe are adults (24" and 26") and im interested in trying to breed them, but im not quite certain if i have a male and a female!

All i know is that the females are typically a bit wider and have a nearly flat head, as opposed to males, who have larger muscles in their head that bulge out a bit.

This description fits my sirens pretty well, but the differences are somewhat subtle. Ive attatched some photos and would love to know what you all think!
