If you bought them together and they were fairly small they probably are a pair now.

Good luck! Kat

A clown pair would have one larger clown (female) and the smaller clown (male). If your clowns have not fully sized up to where the female is significantly larger than the male your pair might be getting there but not quite.

I would suggest a good clown specific book like the following.
