Dear all, I hope everyone is keeping well and safe, I would like your opinion and see which one is female or male or both same sex but which! To be honest still don't have clear info if they are siblings but maybe be siblings but from different father but from same breeder as they were together when I bought them and apart from some dominance from the older, bigger one we are still OK, they are in a much bigger vivarium and I take them out every day, weather permitting, though I have the samller vivarium ready, they still want to sleep together in the same cave.. But I have bought a new one yesterday so lets see, also will try to take pics from bottom, selfie like with help of my daughter 😍, they are 9 month old at the moment and my take and I am not an expert is that big one is female by the looks of plastron, she looks like a Macaroon and the male the shell is like a dynano, fast and furious looks, but I want your opinion, tomorrow morning will send more ❤️

Forgot to add, the big one has a shiny dark brown colour while the small one is much clear colour, as it shows on the pic, veey different in shape, color and size, however still don't know if they are siblings feom same mother, but I think from same father by the looks and size

FYI You should never keep tortoises in pairs.
