    Boy or girl?

    Hello! My Leopard Tortoise will be a year old in February. Just wondering if anyone could take a guess on the sex? Still too young? His/her tail almost always looks like this in the photo! Thank you.

    Eggs or no eggs?

    I have two Greeks (6 yrs old) who do not share an enclosure. They have been separate for the past 4 years.

    Tortoise male or female?

    Hello, My Eastern Hermanns turned four this month and I was wondering if it’s still too soon to sex? Does anyone know if it’s male or female? Ignore how dirty he/she is, they were in the yard enclosure all day and I take them in at night.

    Males or females marginated

    Hi! I have four marginated tortoises and I'm curious about their sex. I'm still in doubt about if they are male or female. The tortoises on the first two pictures are 7 years old, the last two are around 5,5 years old. Can you tell already? I'm thinking two male and two female.

The store employees didn’t know the age, or sex of the tortoise. They claimed it was a hingeback, but it...
