I'm looking for some advice for sexing my youngest spur thighs . I'm having some troubles with them recently and think it may be due to them being sexed wrong at an earlier age. I've attached photos of their "suspected" sex.
They both have a slight concave underside but i'd say the females is more prominent.

thank you

The “female” is 100% a male. The “male” is showing that it could go either way but us the body shape and tail of a female. The anal scutes however, look male. How old are they?

You are not having trouble because of their sexes, whatever they are. You are having trouble because tortoise should never live in pairs. Sexes don't matter. Two males don't get along, two females don't get along, and a male and female don't get along. They need to live separately. Groups with one adult male and several females can sometimes work, but not pairs.
