Another question about head size and gender

Do male corucia have overall squarer heads (as in deeper, as well as wider) than females? I have noticed that the larger of my skinks has almost a cube-shaped head, whereas the other has a relatively flat but broad head.

Yes, males generally do have square, blocky heads. Also males generally have enlarged jaw muscles and a more slender body. Females on the other hand, generally have more slender, elongated heads, and heavier, stockier bodies. The point I am trying to get across is that these are generalizations, and you can't rely only on head shape for sexing. josh
