Some say that you can tell their sexes because the female is bigger than the male, another is that the male will have longer claws on his front legs, and still another is that the male\'s tail will be longer than the female\'s and the female\'s tail will be kinda fat and stubby, but there really isn\'t any real way to tell when they are very young. sorry. I still don\'t know if I have a male and a female or two males etc. etc. anyway I still don\'t know.

do u mean that theodor who was smaller than timothy is bigger now? maybe it depends on how much they eat and move..or maybe timothy is a girl that\'s why she\'s growing faster

who\'s claws are longer? who\'s tail is longer? those are signs of a male and if its anal area is more near the point of its tail rather than its shell, those are male signs.
