The tail size says female. The shape and position of the cloacal opening says male. I think the tortoise may still be too small to know for sure. I'll bet that in the next few years that tail will grow, and you'll realize you have male. I have at least a 50% chance of being right!

Bobbie is 7 this year and I thought she was fully grown?

Unless you have Andre the Giant hands, that doesn't look like a fully grown tortoise to me. Can we see some pics of the whole tortoise? Maybe with a size reference in the pic like a coke can or water bottle?

I feel like it's a young female, send some full body pics as well as the tail from the other side.
