Sexing a baby BRB

Does anybody have any advice for popping week old BRB's. I gave it a go and no luck. No way I have all females. Any advice would be appreciated as this is my first attempt.

thanks in advance

The "rub test" works with the brazilian rainbows, as it does with every member of the south american boas I've tested it on. This video is a better instructional tool than I can do on here.

What Chris said. Palpate it.

I agree, palpitation is the way to go. Far less invasive than probing or popping. (And therefore far less likely to get you a revenge bite from an already nip-prone baby Brazilian).

Great link, by the way, James!
