How can you tell male vs female emerald tree skinks?

Here are some reference photos to compare!

It is easiest to distinguish between adult males and females, because the males will have little yellow pads at the "heel" of their back feet. Moving them individually into a small clear container makes it easier to visualize the underside of their feet.

Generally, males will have a slightly more broad head than females. With our adults, we've noticed the male has a more blue tint to his face as well.
