How can you tell if a snake is male or female?

How can you tell if a snake is male or female?

The two accurate ways to determine snake's sex are either by probing or by popping. With probing, a special instrument is inserted into the snake's cloaca. A certain scale depth will help you determine if it is male or female, depending on the species. Generally the depth is further for male and shorter for female.

With popping, a pressure is applied on the outside of the cloaca. However, only an experienced reptile breeder or vet can do any of the above-mentioned tasks for there is a possibility that the snake can be damaged if the procedure is done the wrong way.
