I think you have yourself a confirmed chicken!
Might be an intersex thing. It does happen.Yes im ashamed to admit it but I did Google images of male tortoise anatomy to compare it to what my tort likes to flash... Lol
Don't be ashamed!!! After I read a thread about how shocked someone was after their male tort flashed them, I did an online search too!!!Yes im ashamed to admit it but I did Google images of male tortoise anatomy to compare it to what my tort likes to flash... Lol
More than likely. We could tell you which sex it is by a photo of it's plastron(underside) and the tail. Females can flash clitoral tissue sometimes, they may also semi prolapse bladders and colons and suck them back up and it would definitely mimic a flash. Most internal organs and tissues in the ventral area are quite representative of looking very similar in color. If this tortoise is with a male or has been with a male than incubation should hopefully prove successful. But if not then the egg will be infertile.mat some point something triggered her into an egg cycle though, so my question would be how long have you had this tortoise, and do you keep others in with it?She/he has started digging, I think this could mean another egg is on its way...
