I would say Female, Female, Male, Female.
How old are they now, Alley?

Wow - I jumped to the end of this thread but will go back to look at the original pics. They're definitely old enough to sex now.

Wow this is an interesting thread. It's really good to compare then and now. Just shows it takes a long time to be sure. So would they have been 3 and 4 years old in the first set of pictures? I would have thought that would have been old enough to sex.

I notice I wasn't confident enough to sex them back then.
Now it's blatantly obvious what they are but I think I'd have still said the same from the first set, now I'm a little more confident and practised at sexing. I may have queried number two but the cloaca is near the top of the tail so would probably have hedged my bets on female.
I'm really glad that they turned out what you wanted them to be.
