Default Boys or girls?!

Does anyone know the best way of going about sexing our tortoises? We've taken some pictures but I don't think I'm allowed to post them because I've only just joined!!

Thanks, Gemma

Nope you can post them you just need to host them on a photo hosting site like photobucket. Here's how to post pictures

Thank you!!

These are our four spur-thighed tortoises, they're living happily together at the moment but we'll see how well they get on over the next few years. Roy and Nora are mine and Cleo and Agatha belong to my mum. Do you have any idea what sex they are? We've been trying to guess but aren't really sure!!

1) Roy, 3 years old




2) Nora, 4 years old




3) Cleo, 3 years old




4) Agatha, 3 years old

Agree with Danny, and hopefully they should be fine together , as has been said, a good ratio of females to male. A good outcome
