I'll have to disagree with Ken. I agree with him for female Corns as mistakes can be made while "popping", but if "popped" & there is hemipenes visable it is definitely a male. "Popping" is the only other "accurate" sexing that can be done other than probing. Popping as well as probing should only be done by those with experience. Popping involves the manual manipulation of "popping" the hemipenes out by applying gentle pressure with ones thumb to do so & is not always 100% effective. Just because you didn't see the hemipenes doesn't always mean that they are not there. Both methods can injure your snake if not done properly by someone who knows how. Looking at tails etc. is a guessing game & they will surprise ya when actually probed sometimes. Mark
