So much easier with males. The flanks is always the first thing I look at, the barring here indicates Lesser (Greaters tend toward whiter flanks). Of course, the second thing I usually look at is the nail and this guy appears to have a pretty wide nail (which would indicate Greater), but these things are all pretty variable.
