If you can post a picture of the underside of the tail we can try to help.

Just from above the cloaca to the tip of the tail.

If the snake is really 1.6 metres in length I would be really surprised if it was a female. Take the photo and post it. just hold the tail straight out and take the pic. Its pretty easy to see when they are that size.
