Male vs Female

Unfortunately the males larger than the females doesn't hold for my two the smaller is the Nila the male and the larger is Priya the female, both DNA sexed but not old enough to make sure it's 100% correct. Nila is starting his ring though.

I have a blue Nila and a grey Priya.
Nila is right at 100 grams and Priya weighs at 135 grams
she is about 25% bigger than Nila and uses every ounce of it to
bully him too.
I think it just may be like people some are larger some are smaller.

That would be funny to see them land in one of your trees and call you by name.
