When I got my Hermann Tortoise Rocky he was 3-4. I got him on November 8th, 2020 and it is now November 21st, 2021. So now I think that he is 4-5 years old. I don't know if his age was accurate when I got him because about 3 months ago he started to get growth rings. I just took some photos of his tail so I was wondering if anyone could determine the sex of "him". Any responses are appreciated.

It looks female right now, but how long is this tortoise? It could still turn out to be a male if it is not all that mature yet.
