Hard to say....they are still young, but one of them is showing signs of the head turning brownish...so there's hope for a female.

I did look at some of these at La Ferme tropicale last year, which were all really nice animals, but I suspect, all were males.
As I said to you recently, my Male was a hatchling in 1984, so at 25 years old, is very much in his prime.
It would be nice to breed these here in Europe.
