Thank you very much for your opinions.

I've never found the sperm plugs with the bigger skink (up). But I 've found the sperm plugs many times with the smallest skink (down) …

It is very difficult to determine gender just by looking at them. Many here have stated that more 'jowls' indicates a male. I have a female with jowls so jowls isn't necessarily a true indication. Neither is tail to body ratio, nor head shape.

Do you have any pictures that show the entire body and tail? I am having a hard time with the one on the left. The middle one looks mostly male, and the one on the right looks mostly female to me.

From that last picture I would say male, but it will probably look different in a few months as it puts on some more weight.
