  • Red shoulder Severum question

    How can you tell the sex of these guys? I have 2 the size of my hand. Itís weird the one gets all colorful and flashy around the lonely silver dollar I have. But it doesnít do the same around the other Severum itís size.

    The common way to sex severums is to look at their face. Males usually have more of a red "scribble" pattern above the mouth and below the eyes, where as a female will have almost none of this. Also, again in the face of the severum, males usually have a much more rounded and broad head, and females have a much straighter head. Hopefully that makes sense. If you were to post pictures of them that could help in giving you an idea of what sex they are.
