In Reply to: Question about sexing 3-toeds! posted by meltone2 on March 28, 2003 at 15:54:54:

: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.
