    Think the one on the right might be male and the one on the left might be female. It would be easier to tell if you just took a side view photo of the just the head of each lizard. Males tend to have bulkier heads. They don't look overweight just look full grown.

    The spurs at the base of the tail should give you a good indication also.

    Looks like female on the left, male on the right, but it's a guess at best. Best to use the spurs or the HTI technique. The one on the right looks like it has puffed itself up. They don't look overweight, normally that shows around the neck.
