Make up your minds group...
Gular does not look bigger, but is separated, and most females seem to almost be one piece.

My sister says it looks to her(Y)that MK gulars are growing, females gulars are small. She thinks MK is in a fluctuation period or something. I do see when looking at her cloaca that the "V" is more "U" now. I will have a fit if she is really a male. I have done things simply because Knobby was a female. I cannot have 2 males in my shed.Damn it!

Well the cloaca is still close to the body, the tail is still quite small and the anal scutes point inward - all girl traits. But that up curved gular is a male trait. So three girl traits to one boy trait. Mary Knobbins!

And, simply because it's magnificent; Dudley Gomez and (no doubt here) Male gular, what a big weapon, and he just looks mean.
I have always been wary of Dudley, he is well over 100 lbs, he looks mean, and he chases me! Seriously...he can run fairly fast for a tortoise. So I started giving him really good treats (sorry Y) everyday. But he continued to chase me. He is very territorial. Anyhow look at him, he exudes meanness and orneriness... but I won him over with apples...

He is my sisters, I took those picture when I was at her place.

And I need to stress, just because Dudley 'looks' mean and I say he is, he really isn't, he is just so impressive so big and curious, intelligent...

I am always impressed at Dudley. He definitely is a wild animal. She rarely feeds him! She treats him as a wild animal, and I can't see her out in her pen "hey Dudley baby come follow me, come here sweetie" I can't see it. She never pays any attention to him at all. Yet, he is so healthy, and active, just the epitome of male Sulcata, you get an adrenaline rush being close to him.
OMG! Here he comes...
