I'd say the last pic is a male. I could be wrong, but that's what I think. The other looks female. :/

A couple of my more aggressive females flare a beard, but it's not as big or defined as a male's. I have a suspect male in my sorority who seems to flare a lot more than any of my females.

Going by the picture, I would say there is a high possibility it could be a male. Does it have an egg-spot? I've found my suspect male had one like all the other females until he started sprouting and now it's not there any more.

It's aggravating buying females that turn out to be males. Mine is staying in the sorority until he gets too aggro.
