    Hermans Toetoise help with sexing

    By the way, he weights 340grams (just weighed him). Is his weight consistent with a 4 year old Hermann’s on average?

    Hermans Toetoise help with sexing

    Thanks @Yvonne G. In your expert experience, does it look like it’s a normal growth for a 4 year old. Should he/she be bigger or is it about right? I’ve been trying to get smooth shell growth.

    Hermans Toetoise help with sexing

    Hello- how is everyone doing? I have a ~4 year old hermanni and was wondering if it’s finally possible to tell the sex. I’ll post a few pics. Let me know what you think of it. I’ve kept it in a closed chamber for humidity and I think it’s growing nicely. Opinions welcomed.

    Please help in sexing my redfoot tortoise please

    Hello all! It’s been a little over a year since my question. And was wondering if now it’s clearer to tell the sex. I’m guessing female, but I’m sure you all out there have more experience. Here are a few pics of Sunny now.
