Default Mr or mrs please

Been on this forum for years now, more of a lurker than poster though.
I have just got a new hermans tortoise, 2 years old.
Can any one tell yet if male or female please?

im not good sexing hermanns cause all their tail horns look the same - id say female due to sharp butterfly shape by the tail. If it was broader it could be a male so they can swing their tails and no concave to mount the female...though maybe too young ! lovely tortoise, colour, CB

Still quite young to tell for sure, but I think more likely female.
