We have a young sulcata and are trying to determine the sex. It’s about 7 inches across, so might be too small to tell.

Thank you

It has a very small gular, the anal scutes point straight back, and the tail is small - all female attributes, however, almost all tortoises look female until they get big enough to be going through sexual maturity. At that time shells and tails change if they're male.
