It's not so much age as size Pop some photos up, it would be lovely to see them anyway Plastron photos (underneath) are best for sexing, plus back, side and top - proper photo shoot

Age has nothing to do with sexing at all, size is everything with tortoises:0)

Hiya, going by their size, I would say they are around 4-6 months old rather than 18 months old just one more thing, I keep my horsfields humidty between 40-60% so spraying with water and turning the soil a few times a week stops the substrate drying out too much can we see their top sides now please x
