    I know that Shelly Dome is still young. He's a bit over 2 year old but I think he may be a male.

    Based on pictures of Cupcake the tortoise from another member on here. Cupcake is a female since she has a really short tail with a C shape scute. Shelly Dome has a really long tail compare to Cupcake. Also, his plastron is starting to concave a little bit. Maybe it's a bit hard to see from pic.

    I got him as a hatchling on Oct 27, 2017. He was 33 gr. He is 1032 gr (2.27 lbs) today. He's about 6.5 in x 4 in.

    Can anyone help confirm if he is a male please? Or is it still too early to tell? Thank you!

    Male. No doubt.
