Hello, my eastern hermann tort is probably still a little young, but I heard you can sex them sometimes at above 4 inches long, and the tort is a bit longer than that measuring straight horizontally down the shell. Casually curious, as the tort was I believe temperature sexed at a higher chance to be male, and there seems to be a significant spike scale forming at the end of a longish tail. There's no noticeable concave yet though on the plastron.

Regardless, a round one haha

(the white spot on the left side of the belly is a scar of sorts had since birth)

Ok I'll take a guess. But only because of the little rule of an asterick* or Phillips screwdriver is female and the straight/ screwdriver is male. So female. But s/he may not be done yet.🤗
