Sexing my Leopard Gecko?

Hello all, I've had my Leopard Gecko, Fred, for years. When we got them, the clerk at the pet store didn't know it's gender, though I assume that's because it was fairly young when we got them.

I was wondering if anyone could help sex my Leopard Gecko? If better pictures are needed, I will provide them. Thank you!

Female. Try to get the shed off the toes (if you haven't done so already) by soaking the gecko for a minute or so in about 1/2" of warm water and pulling the shed off with your fingernails.

At this point q-tips are probably not going to do it. Fingernails work great. If you gently put the fold of your shirt tail over the gecko's head, it thinks it's hiding and it's easier to deal with the toes.
