Here is a photo of one of my approx. 19 month old Spur Thighed Iberas, now at that young age it is certainly difficult to sex, so what do you guys think?, go on have a guess! ;) ...T.T.

Hey Darren, your right mate, it is hard to tell at this age, I will agree on the vent shape?, this tort is also one of the biggest out of them?, and what about the size/shape of the anal scutes? then there is the behavioural differences to consider? (but you cant get that from a photo, I know!!! ;-)) ...T.T.

Could be a female as the vent is more round than long, but I have some the same age but wouldn't sell them as either sex as it's really to early
