i believe you cant sex a tortoise until there round 5-6yrs old? (unless of course you have bred them at a certain temp and hopefully there boys or girls.lol)

clifford and boris were hatched in 08 but i can see that boris"s tail is a lot bigger and fatter than cliffords,
cliffords is small and thin


will this change as they get older or is it safe to say i have a boy and girl?

if i have one of each how old before i seperate them?

Hi hunny,

there are ways to tell - one of mine is about 4yrs old and I'm almost definate that its a boy. Some are easier to tell then others.
If you can get some clear photos's of their nether regions we can have a look and see if we can tell for you.

Hi Clair,



i wouldn't worry about seperating them for a while yet as they've a long time to go before reaching sexual maturity so for now, just enjoy them :D
