type snakebytes into youtube and you will find a vid on how to do it and what to look for....and lots of snake and non-snake related silliness

This is the link to the vid on the 4 methods of sexing snakes

I actually had one of the local breeders teach me. While I don't trust myself probing every snake the easy to handle ones are no problem.
My GTP I'm going to take down to the breeder just because of the delicate nature of these snakes.

I'm starting to think I'm gonna get a cheap pair of normal breeding size corns to attempt my first breeding and probing projects with. I don't think I want to risk hurting any of my pets. I know it's not fair for those corns if I hurt them, but hell .... I gotta learn somehow =/ And I'm gonna be extra careful anyway cause I can't stand the thought of hurting them o.o

Wouldn't be easier to learn to probe on a bigger snake like a ball?

I dunno =/

I hate thinking like this, but:

Corn snakes are cheap and plentiful. Balls are more expensive .... I'd rather learn on corns ... Especially if I've gotta sex those little babies =/

Snuffles, just ask people at the reptile show to show you how. A lot of times they will probe them just to show you how and give you little tips as they do it.
