    My armadillo lizard is 6 months old, and at first I believed it to be a female. Her head was as narrow as her neck. Now it's broadening and she developed a yellow throat. I'm having difficulty finding any pictures comparing male and females side by side.
    Any thoughts? 10153639_870165012999497_8121702872252610188_n.jpg

    I've read that this species can be very difficult to sex even looking at the vents... I've not seen enough for comparison to know how to sex them otherwise. If this is the only one you plan on keeping and you have no intention of breeding, I'd personally just arbitrarily assign it a sex, lol =)

    I know someone with a lizard the same age, and I thought about breeding in the future. She said hers didn't have the yellow-orange coloration under the chin like mine does. Didn't know if it was significant.
