    I tried to sex this one, and there's no foam. It's buddy was for sure a Male but i'm not sure about this one. No chest shots, peach break, and makes a low humming noise. The male keeps trying to mount it and is biting the top of its head when doing so. Any ideas?

    I will say female. I'm not an expert at these things, but I think it's a female.

    Okay. Thank you. I'm thinking the same. I think she's younger than what I was told seeing as how she doesn't have a spotted breast yet. But it looks like they're starting to come in.
