BOY! ..Hope I get it right this time :/

I have a couple boxies and it seems I am still undecided on the sex of my turts so I wanted to get some more opinions. Here is "Chip". I would guess this is a male based on my other 3-toe. The tail seems a bit longer beyond the vent and of course the more reddish coloring in the forelimbs and the eyes. However, they both seem to have indented plastrons. What do you think?


Notice the coloring of the eyes,forelimbs, and the arch of the shell.


Here the vent appears to be protruding beyond the rim of the shell and the tail appears to be longer after the vent.


Notice the slight indention in the plastron.
