    Umm.. First.. Let's straighten this lil thing out a bit hhee. It is a "CLOACA" not a gloaca hehe.

    Now as for the sexing thing.. If you are refering to an RTB, then what is primarily used for sexing them is called probing. This should ONL:Y be done by someone who knows what they are doing for the snake's health and safety btw.
    As for any scale counts in relation to RTB's.. I wouldn't know of such myself at all. AND even if there were a scale count to go by.. With all the different ss of RTB's that there are / locals that is even.. it wouldn't hold true I would think in most cases.
