Default Could you please sex my tortoises

Would you mine sexing 4 of my tortoises. At one time I thought they might all be girls. But I have my doubts about some of them now.
But I'm still not that confident on sexing them myself

Many thanks in advance for looking

They are Ibera
Number 1
845g and measures 6 3/4 inches





Number 2
864g and measures 6 1/2 inches




Number 3
This one I'm really not sure about!! So I'll post a couple of pictures at different angles.
709g and measures 6 inches







Number 4
863g and measures 6 1/2 inches

I'm not sure about sexing Iberas but I'd say the first two are female and the last two male.

I don't have a clue about sexing Ibera but will guess: 1 female & the other 3 male!

I'm glad it's not just me that's finding them difficult to sex
