    Unlike the anal spurs on Burmese Pythons, the anal spurs on both male and female Ball Pythons are similar in size. There is no way to RELIABLY differentiate the sexes by appearance, so photos won't help. At best, anything you are told based strictly on morphology would be a guess.

    That having been said, the only reliable way to sex a BP is to either 1) have the snake probed by a knowledgeable person (reptile veterinarian or breeder who has snake sexing probes), or 2) manually evert the snakes hemipenes (male reproductive organs), which shold ALSO only be done by a knowledgeable person (you can really hurt the snake if you don't know what you're doing!).

    I wold be happy to do this for you, but I'm in Houston!

    Hope this helps.
