Hello!

My sulcata is a little over 3 years old. I have done my research on how to sex Sulcatas but I still am not sure with mine. I see the anal scutes are more of a v shape suggesting a female, however, the plastron has a bit of a concave to it. Is it still too early to tell?

Thanks for any help!

Too young yet but looking Male to me. You have a couple years yet unless he flashes you sooner then that. My leopards flashed me around the age of 3 usually in a warm soak.

Agreed. Too small to tell. You can usually tell when they reach 14-16 inches.
