Default Sex Please!!!

Hi

I wonder if you kind people could give an opinion on the sex of this Ibera?

Originally she was identified as being female here ...however

he/she has been mounting a female could be dominance I know ... no flashing has been observed!!!

She/he is a fair bit older now so if you guys could take another look please?

I know what I think... but would like confirmation for a friend..

Many Thanks in advance
