Hi,
Someone has given me their 6 year old marginated tortoise. It was sold to them as male, but various vets have disagreed. I wonder if you could help me out? Is it a he or a she? Is it too early to tell?
(He/she hates being upside down, so the tail photo ended up being a bit blurry because I had to take it from underneath - I hope it’s good enough).
