This is a grey, note how the forehead smoothly slopes down into the muzzle. Check out some of the other observations here on iSpot. It's a female, note the slight concave shape to the muzzle, males have a distinct convex shape, like a true Roman nose. Also note the nostrils, they are roughly parallel; they would almost meet at the bottom forming a V shape in a common seal.
