Hi! Need your help sexing our 5 year old Hermann’s tortoise. We have always been under the assumption that it is a female however today she has begun humping things in her enclosure. What do you guys think?

Females get like that when they're ready to breed or lay eggs. I can't see the tail very well in the pictures.

Hi Yvonne thanks so much for your reply! I thought that would be the case but wanted a second opinion. When I am back at work in the morning I will take some better photos of her tail and underside.
