If the vet popped it as a male I'm pretty sure it's going to be a male. If it is popped as a male it means they saw hemipenes.

I've heard of snakes being popped as males but the hemipenes they saw ended up being large scent glands on a female. It's rare, but it happens. I would say if the vet popped the snake as a male, it is male. A second opinion wouldn't hurt, but hemipenes are usually pretty easy to spot.

Jesse, I think that is what happened to my het pied snake. It was sent to me as a male, free with a purchase of a female visual pied. I never sexed it until the beginning of breeding season this year. Come to find out that he was a she. I've got 8 eggs in the incubator that are due to pip in five days from her. Now, I'm just hoping the het proves out. Since the breeder missed the sex, I'm hoping he got the genetics correct.

ichopz, I work downtown in the Bank of America Building. If you are off one day or at home during lunch, I can either go over to your house and pop it or you can bring it downtown. I'm fairly good at popping adult balls. If you want me to probe the snake, I need to know a day in advance so I can bring my probes to work with me. Otherwise, I can meet you some place near the Chesterfield Courthouse or Police Station.

ichopz, I will be unable to sex the snake this Friday. My schedule just changed. We can plan on it next week if that works. Just send me a PM and we can make arrangements.
