I have 4 females cherry heads and what I thought was a male. The male took me a wile to find, because I wanted a bigger sized one. but I have had him for a few months, and today it looks to be digging a test nests. It did flash me but it was nothing compared to tortoise that have flashed me in the past, and i know that females can flash you. It has shown no Interest in any of my females. It has a somewhat concaved plastron and it’s tail looks female when I compared it to a definite female the same size. Let me know what you think. The first photo is the female that I know is female and the rest of the photos are the on in question he is 9-10in. (I have huge hands)

l think the second one is a male as its tail looks like it might be curled up to the side, the rest are females from what l see.

The first pic is a proven female. All the other pics is of the same tortoise which you have guessed to be both sexes.lol

I have to agree. Looking female.
The good thing is you have a nice group of females and it's easier finding a male.
Or you could easily trade a female for a male, you taking a bit of a loss as females sell for more.
