just a guess on structure , but tbh thats all it is , a guess .
oh its called a few things but basically you firmly but gently run your finger down tailward from the cloacia & if its a boy you should feel (for want of a better word) a mini speed hump which is the hemipenes ,
you wont feel anything on a girl .
done correctly at a youngish age its 100%

spurs are no definition of sex , some females have massive spurs & some males are barely visible
the bump however is an unmistakeable marker .
