Hello

 

My torts are 4 years old, and i am wondering whether their pics attached give a clue of their gender. 

 

I am unsure if the quality of the pcitures are telling anything though.

 

I think this is a question for Sue or Karen.

 

Thank you

 

Sabina

Was just going to say the same thing Karen. Normally it’s around 4 years of age, but if grown slowly, can be a bit longer. I’ve had two tortoises back today that were last years hatchlings, they are the size of 4 year olds. Couldn’t believe it

That's still too small to say, and would just be a guess really, your growing them at a good steady rate and might take a bit longer to say what sex they are. x
