Definitely a female.
If ever you have a problem with the prolapse, soak in sugar water. This stops any swelling and sometimes helps it go back into place.
Then see a tortoise vet:0)

Thank you everyone! I'll keep an eye on it. It's obviously the only time I've seen this and everything popped away when I put her back down. Feel rather daft now! Is it something unusual or to be concerned about? Is there a common cause?
Thanks Gordon! I'm currently 5 months pregnant and my hair and nails have gone bananas!

Yes you just melt sugar in water, and it can reduce swelling especially in males, who are normally the ones who have prolapes.
I have tried this when one of my males was over amorous in the first weeks of getting up from hibernation. I soaked him in the sugar water and it worked:0)
I think you could also use glucose diluted in water too.

Thank you Sandy, what do you think is the proportions to the water? ie teaspoon to 100ml , that sort of equivalent. I must admit I am a little generous when it comes to critical care to water. thank-you, CB

To be honest I just poured the sugar in, didnt weigh it:0)
I would say something like a cup full to bathing deep water:0)
