    Jim, the picture does not quite have the detail to be sure. If the tube is squared off at the tip it is female. Males are a bit smaller with a pointy end.

    I would say female. I'm no expert but that's what I saw when my females laid eggs.

    Sorry for the bad picture quality, my camera skills are just not as good as I use to be. Other times when they were showing and a lot better, they did look squared mostly. I will be sure to monitor them and see if I can get a better picture. Maybe I'll ask Santa for a telephoto lens for Xmas and a camera picture taking class. Pat your picture taking skills are a quality I'd like to accomplish.

    This picture which is really bad shows it looking a bit on the pointy side, but yes I agree it most likely is female, so that means I have all female Alenquer's TaDa.
