Hi,
Unsure as to whether our tortoises tail is normal, as it looks different to that of our others. The tortoise is two and half yrs old and a hermann. Attached File  archies tail.jpg   456.92KB   112 downloads

Hi There,
Torts tails come in all shapes and sizes. Females are smaller than males. No need to worry. Looks like you could have a female. Probably still a little early to tell. Hope this helps. :)
Take care. ;)
Kind Regards
Freddy :D
