At that size, I'm pretty sure you can't tell.

at such a small size, you cant. wait till about 4" maybe 3 1/2" to tell. The males (and of many other arboreal sp.) typically have larger, fuzzier legs....the females lack this, as well as hooks. Correct me if i'm wrong here, but i believe by cambreidgi and pulcher, this is how to tell:?

Yup i know about the fuzier legs and the hooks when they are dult, but the females are very beautifull, the males are brown, grayish, so i hoped that it was possible te see so before they are bigger

At that size it is very very hard to tell...
Buy 3 or 4 slings then your chances of getting a female are very good...
