I suppose on Horsfields and spur it seems so obvious its a boy cause the tail is long and pointy but hermanns always pointy, but yes suppose at 4 years of age would be longer and fatter by now. The distance between scute and shell is usually a good give away too on most I think. CB

My method wasn't very scientific!
Im going on the white skin above the toe nails if you see that it's a girl.
