Default Help please ?

ok so I was under the impression I have two females but today after a warm bath my Geoffrey started to get a little to happy with George there was not only allot of movement but also noise making so I separated them to calm the situation . My question is do females also do it to females or has the sexing help been wrong ?

If they are both the same sex, then they could be just sorting out who is alpha tortoise. This can happen with females, or though more commonly in males. And obviously males will do what males do if you have one of each.
How old are they?
If you post pictures of their underside tail end, someone will have a go at sexing them for you.

Thank you . Was just worried . They literally had a warm bath and then that was it the bigger one started to chase and try it with the smaller one soon stopped after a few mins of running around but gave me doubts wondering if I'd have to split them up or not .

No that was just a summer treat from the wild plant they found in the garden that has now been potted up and out of reach so they have the leaves and flowers. But after the hyper stomp they had after the small ones they had .. Never again ! Haha
