Unless you can get a closer view of the spot between the first pair of booklungs, I'd say an underside picture of the actual specimen would be better.

Flatten this part out and focus where the circle is.

spritz it, don't soak it with some water and you should be able to flatten it out for a better picture.

My wife and had a look at gwrights site and there are some good sexing pics there and as far as we can tell she is a she !! whooo hooo !! she is pretty close to 5 inches or maybe a little bigger...I will be getting a digi cam in a few weeks so I will post some pics of her underside... :D

if she is 5 inches, you should see a definate 'flap' between the first set of book lungs. It will be really obvious at that size. If there is no leaf like or flap like projection, then it's a boy!
