The truth is if you are not used to handling Savannah monitors you may have a very hard time determining the sex of the monitor. The monitor should be sexed by a reliable Herp Vet. with Monitor experience. As young monitors the male usually will not evert their Hemipenis, which makes it very difficult to determine male from female. I will however give you a site that explains way of sexing the Savannah Monitor. I hope this site will help you in your quest to find out how to determine the sex of a Savannah Monitor. Jav917
