I was expecting something completly different :(
Based on the sexual charateristics it looks female but let's ask @Moozillion.

I'm with dmmj and wccmog10: pretty sure it's female. I'd expect a much bigger tail for a male.[emoji2]

My GF keeps telling me size doesn't but after being on this forum for so long, now I am not so sure :(

I agree with @Moozillion and the others, right now the turtle looks female. What is the straight carapace length of the turtle? If it's much under 3" SCL, I would go with too early to tell.
