Oh, Danielle! What a pretty tortoise. I don't know if its male or female, but I'm guessing male. The tail doesn't look all that big, though.

What a beautiful tort. I'm new to the forum and had never seen this breed until joining the forum yesterday. They are stunning.

I agree with Yvonne...looks male to me but does have a small tail...have you seen any flashing? My vet, Dr. Jarchow, says radiated are extremely difficult to sex, especially young.

Hello all
Thanks for your kind comments. He is wonderful i do adore him. He has not flashed me yet so we shall see if he does in the bath. He wiggles his tail alot when in warm water and sometimes when his charging around. He is extremly strong and so beautiful! I actually feel i have the radiated bug again :) i would love a partner for him however my bank account does not agree just yet so maybe in the future. If im lucky enough to find another in the UK that is...very difficult to get adults, im extremly lucky to have him. Thanks so much Ed i really appreciate your help. I think his male but was confused but his short tail. The previous owner said he tried mating with the females and males. Also he was adement he is male.
I shall be posting more pictures as time goes on. Thanks again everyone xx
