    Males have a bigger head, more round. Females have longer skinner head. I couldn't find a good pic.

    Female far back center. 2-Males right. I think the one with the head down is a female. hard to tell. I thought I had better pics.

    Quote:most of the time spurs on the male and not on the females the same still holds for the head male is blockier also Males are a good deal larger
