Default sexing varaderos

So I'm at work right now but I'll upload pictures when I get home. But I bought three varaderos from a board member at frog day back in May and while one passed away , the other two are alive and eating like crazy. One is noticeably larger than the other, and I was wondering if this meant I had a male and female?

I said I bought them at frog day which was May 14, so at the time, they were like 7-8 weeks old. Let's just say 2 months for sake of math. I've had them for two months now, so 4 months old total. Is this too young to sex?

We can certainly take a guess, but before 6 months is difficult. Throw up some pics, though.

In my experience you can usually take a pretty accurate guess at which ones are females at that young an age. Even at that young an age they will start to show the plumper pear shape body.
