You can find a few methods to inform the intercourse of the Beardie and both include evaluating exactly what are called, the ‘hemipenal bulges’.
The initial, and easiest method is to position your Beardie on a set area and carry the tail up 90є.
Then look above the vent, tail side, maybe maybe not leg region of the vent, which will be a standard blunder by many people.
What you’ll notice whether or not it’s a male would be the two hemipenal bulges on each region of the end base.

For women, you will see simply the single bulge in the centre.

And that is all there is certainly to it. Simple actually.
The exact same as above in beardie placement and end lifting, but this right amount of time in darker conditions.
Make use of a flash-light (phone flash-lights work great) and shine through the beds base of this tail, over the vent in the end’s topside, and appear during the underside.
If it is a male, the two pointed out hemipenal bulges should always be effortlessly noticeable.
