New Western Hognose Snake sexing

Hey guys, thanks in advance for helping me and me being a newbie to the forum.

I purchased my new hognose snake from a breeder at my local reptile show and she's a beauty and friendly.

I was just wanting to confirm her gender with anyone that has experience with sexing hognose snakes. Thanks guys!

It's difficult to tell by your pictures, I can't really tell where the vent is located.

How much does the Hog weigh?

I'll have to get back to you on the weight since I just feed her a few hours ago, but her vent starts right after the first row of solid yellow/tan scales right before the solid black scales start. Thanks for the replies guys.

Based on what you said about her vent location, I would say it's a girl.

Here's a pic of a neonate female:
