Help with sexing Little Dude

Postby Therese » Fri Apr 14, 2017 12:32 pm

Hello
Can anyone help with the sex of our Hermanns tortoise, Little Dude? (Named when he/she was about 2). From reading online I have a sneaking suspicion that he might be a she but would value some expert advice.
Also if he is a she I am feeling torn about what to call her!
Thanks

Thanks. I suspected as much, although she has never been very ladylike in her habits.
We had to rearrange her furniture when we found her like this the day she woke from hibernation.
