    Hello. I've had my tortoise about 8 years but I think she (maybe he) is about 11ish, we got her from a family friend as they were moving away. I think she is as she but I can't seem to find anything online that's clear enough to confirm so I thought I'd ask for some opinions! Attached is a couple of pictures of Cally! Thanks in advance!

    Because the tail is so small, I'm guessing female.

    Thanks for getting back to me! I'm glad you think so, she also has a really flat tummy(?) which I gather is a female thing too. Jess
