    That's the same problem I have..... I just can't tell... The male in front has red all around his eyes and down around his ear lobes, plus really big waddles. The other doesn't. But his/her waddles aren't as big.....

    Thanks everyone! I'm sure he's tired of getting his name changed every other week. [​IMG]
