Default Male or Female?

Hi Everyone

I rehomed 6 Ibera today, need some help with sexing them please! They hatched in an airing cupboard in August 2006, but are HUGE! I have an inkling they may all be boys.

Number One


Number Two


Number Three


Number Four


Number Five


Number Six


If the pictures aren't clear enough let me know and I will try to get some more done.
Thanks!

Hi

Sorry yes I've been really busy recently, new job and now 15 tortoises as well as all my other animals keep me very busy! This lot were hatched in 2006 the biggest one weighs 380g and my 2007 hatchlings weigh 38g! The size difference is amazing!
