Default Possibly a male?

All four photos are the same tortoise from different angles - is this 8 year old tortoise possibly male?

Thank you! If both my tortoises are female are they laying eggs just because they can? They have never been near any other tortoises so I'm assuming it's just like the way chickens lay eggs and they are obviously infertile.

Why has she ended up smaller than my other tortoise? She also has pyramiding, which my other tortoises does not even though they have been kept together since hatching in the exact same environment and on the same diet.
