The first picture says female, the last your tortoise looks male:0)
Is this the same tortoise?
As the tail in the first picture is so short, and the plasteron is flat.
The last picture the tail looks a lot longer.

Hi
Thanks for your replies, yes it's definitely the same tortoise. He was hatched 2008.
Here's another photo, he was wiggling his tail around a lot when I was taking them
