Hi,all
It's quite difficult for me to tell the sex of Pyxis tortoise,
Need your help, can you explain how to determine the sex of these two cute spider tortoises as attached photos
Are they a pair or just two males?
Thank you

Both:

I'm gonna say two males, but that's just a guess. 2 of mine are known to be male (flashed) & have tails about that size if not smaller.

Thank you for replaying me, :)
Is that true all males have concave plastron?
Would you mind to show some pictures about your spiders
