All males regardless whether they are people or turtles will have an erection at least once per day to retain the ability to become erect. In people, the brain sends a message out to the penis to become erect usually before the person wakes up or just upon waking. It is the same with all animals. If the tissue does not become erect on a regular basis, it soon loses the ability to do so. In most animals the brain controls this function unconsciously.
:males have the cloacal opening farther out from the end of the carapace. males tend be larger. also,look for the penis. males occasionally fan their penis out. (i dont know why, i guess things get cramped in that tail) :
