Since you guys helped me sex my 12 inch male Sulcata yesterday which I thought was female. I thought I would see if you guys could give me your opinions on my other three Sulcatas. I know its probably to early to tell but I'd appreciate the feedback :) The first pic is a 10 inch tortoise which I'm guessing is female. And the last two are both around 7 inches and one looks female to me and one looks male. Thanks!

I agree I would think male male female but again it's still early.

First two are female...last one im unsure of. Possibly male.
How are you measuring them? Top of shell? Or bottom?

Thanks guys! And I measured their bottom shell. The first one I thought might be female cuz it's anal scutes are more rounded. But yea I know it's prob to early to tell. I'm just hoping I have at least one female lol

It also helps when you can see their tail. The 1st one is definitely a female. Second one female. Last one is too small yet. I believe male...

I'm leaning female on the first one, but I won't guess without seeing the tail.

The second two are too young and could still go either way.
