Hello, I’m seeking some educated guesses on sexing my Leopard tortoises. I currently have 2 PP & 1 PB measuring 8 inches in length. I’m pretty sure my PB is female. In my opinion, she is showing all signs female except for minimal concaving on the plastron.
For my 2 PP...every day I change my mind on what they could possibly be. I’m leaning female for both of them as well but to me it could for sure still go either way. I’m aware that I might have to wait another 6months to a year to know for sure but was just wondering what the group thought.
Thanks to all the active members, I’ve really enjoyed all the posts and advice. This is an awesome site!

Both are still a bit too small to sex, however judging by the tails I'd say both male. However, the shells haven't changed yet. Anal scutes still look too small to sex.

Thanks Yvonne. When you say both are looking male, are you referring to the 2 PP? There are 3 torts in this post. 1 PB & 2 PP

Oh, sorry. . . Didn't realize there were two SAs. Can't see the position of the cloaca in the last tort,so that one's unknown

Blackdog, what is the shell length of your young male? My PB in that first picture is 2.5 years old also.
