    Thanks, Barb.
    But for the good of the forum....I'd better not say.
    I've been wrong too often.

    I would say female too. Wide anal scutes and a short, thick tail. Perfect for laying eggs.:) But without warranty!:D

    Thank you to everyone. I thought it was a female also but needed the 2nd, 3rd and 4th opinions before I spent any money. So still looking for a male for my trio of adult females.

    Have you told the seller before that you are searching for a male ? I am sure he would have told you that is a female if you had told him you searching a female. LOL.
    The seller wants to sell the same tort, one time male and the other time female. It`s your choice.:eek::D

    I'd be happy to trade one of my trio of adult males for one of your females. Let me know if interested.
