Hi all! I have a 5 year old leopard tortoise that I am quite confused with the gender of. Here are some pics. Any help is greatly appreciated! D0E444FE-34D6-4A84-B147-4E3039335312.jpeg

That is a female.

Best to not flip them on their backs for pics. You can hold them with their head pointing up and get the same shot. A lot less stressful.

I know you didn't ask for it, but in case you are interested, here are a couple fo threads about diet and care:

Labeled for sulcatas, so less emphasis on grass for a regular leopard tortoise, but all the rest applies.

Yours isn't a baby, but lots of good info here too:

Thanks so much for all the info, I will read it all! I am always trying to improve my Tortoises lives so any reputable info is really welcomed!

Looks like a female to me also.

What happened to your hand?
Thanks so much for the response. I broke my arm a couple weeks ago from a bike accident but it should heal fairly fast! It gets quite dirty from all the animal care though!
