I can't seem to figure out if my RT, Squirtle, is a boy or girl. PetSmart said it's a girl, but going off your post, it could be either. He/She has his/her tail tucked to one side or the other 95% of the time, has a narrower tail, and the V-notch like a male. On the other hand, his/her vent (poopshoot) looks puckered like a female. We're not sure whether to refer to Squirtle as he or she, him or her, so we've been saying "he/she", "him/her", and "shim". Could you please help me to identify Squirtle's gender? Thanks!
