I have what I am 90% sure is a female cherry head tortoise but her behavior in Making me think otherwise. I have 1 small male and 4 big females. I have had them all for over two months now with the exception of the mail I got him a few days ago. The female in question is chasing around the smaller mail and trying to mount it. But I have not seen smaller male have any luck breeding any of my females yet. I am assuming it’s because he’s too small to breed them but I have seen others his size read larger females. I have attached some photos of the female in question she has a slight concave in her plastrons but not to the point where it’s telling me mail her tail and everything else are making me lean towards female. I have had her with three other females larger than her for over two months and she has not attempted breeding them or started breeding them. If I am just completely wrong here please let me know I have attached photos of her plastrons, She is about 11 inches I have had Redford’s in the past but I’m not completely sure with cherry heads yet also looking for a large male cherry head still doesn’t need to be high-quality. Here is a link to a video showing her behavior. https://youtube.com/shorts/A8e6s-WtdDE?feature=share
