Sexing Convict

Hey guys, wondering if anyone can help me determine if this is a male or female Convict. I think its a female, but it seems that most convicts nowadays have orange bellies.

The behavior also suggests to me that it's probably a male. Thanks for the confirmation.

Oh yeah I see. I did some research and have confirmed my original suspicion that my two convicts are both females.
