I recently got a redfoot tortoise and was curious to see if it is old enough to tell. To me, it looks like a female, but from what I read, they all kinda look like females until you can properly tell.

Too young to tell I think. Can you get a better, closer picture of the tail?

Tail and plastron looking female but the Anal Scutes are looking male. Too young to call it I'd say. If the tail tail doesn't get bigger and the plastron doesn't get indented within the next year then it's female.
