    Hottentotta hottentotta? If so, they are a parthenogenic species. So it would be a female.

    Really, they could never be a male? Right sir?

    Never is a strange word to use, as many partho species of gecko have had males show up. They cannot breed with the females, however. I believe I remember reading about male Hottentotta hottentotta show up, and possibly breed. I can't remember where I saw this though, so I won't use it as valid evidence. Point is, it is possible to have a male, but highly unlikely. I would just be safe and say you have a female. :)

    EDIT:

    There are male populations of Hottentotta hottentotta, but assuming you got this from one of the hobbyist breeders, I highly doubt you have one of the animals from these non-partho populations. Good read: http://arachnoboards.com/threads/hottentotta-hottentotta.191086/page-2
