Theoretically that's not how you pop sex snakes, It looks more like someone is popping the snake to prolapse, if the snake was popped correctly this would've been a male.

That is not the way you pop sex snakes. You could be causing a prolapse. Just have it sexed by somebody who knows what they are doing and observe.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

I watched a video of a Boa breeder in LA, he says for Boas under a year old to use the "bump" method, where you gently run your thumb down the underside of the tail and if you feel a "bumb" it's the hemipenes. I haven't tried this, just thought I'd share.

Heidi I need to attent your husbandary course when the next one comes up.
