So I think these two Egyptians may be male and female. But I would like to be 100% sure. I have been told they are the pair, but not for sure yet. So....can anybody tell me what these torts are?

I'm not good at sexing Egyptians, but they both look male to me.

I agree, also no expert on egyptians, plus they still look young to know for sure, but they are looking like they are going to be males.

Gotta agree w/ Yvonne and Jeff...looks very much like two males.

Top one definitely, need a better shot of the cloacal opening on the bottom one, but it certainly has a large tail.

I agree they both look to be males. The first definitely is. The second one also appears to be based on the tail length but a straight on shot of the tail (similar to the first photo) would tell better.

I tried to take the best shot I could of the 2nd tortoises' tail, but he/she was being stubborn. These are the best I got. I hope it helps! The last pic may look a little weird. The tortoise was releasing some urates and I decided to pick him up and take a picture, all while hoping he wouldn't pee on me! His little tail has some aspen pieces and urates in there because I just picked him up by surprise.

The second one is definately a male. :) Can you take more pictures of the first one like you did for the second one? How big is the first one?
