Hi, I attatched pics of 2 sulcata,a 10inch and an 8 inch.
Both have very short tails,and flat plastrons.

I guess the 8 inch would be too young ,but still looks like a male to me,the 10" is the one I am interested in,and looks like a female to me.
What do you guys think???

Thanks for your help!!
-Mike

doesn't look like either have concaved plastrons so at first I was thinking both are girls too, but the anal scutes on the 10 incher looks more like female and the wider anal scutes on the 8 inch look more like a male. Though I understand it is difficult to tell until they are about 15 inches or they flag. So my guess is one of each though I am frequently wrong. :p

I'm learning :D got one right. I guess it's going to take a little longer for me to learn how to tell them apart correctly.
