    well I could be wrong but they look like hemipenes.....so it would be a boy shed...I know when my boy first shed his I was so excited because it confirmed the probing was correct !!

    now someone told me they arent hemipenes but sperm plugs.....well whatever they are they are boy bits

    That's very interesting. I had no idea female sheds had two "prongs", too.

    My girls have perfect sheds each and every time...never ever seen one of those.
    Not sure how it would make sense that the females would have plugs that long?
