Boy or girl?

Post your pictures and any questions here of European tortoises e.g. Ibera Spur Thigh, Ibera Graeca, Marginated, Hermanns, Kleinmanni and we include the Horsfield tortoise. Also, do add pictures of Mediterranean tortoises you have seen in the wild.

Send in photos of the nether regions Richy and we will have a look. How old is Mr/s B.
Re the chip. I believe that once tortoises are over a specific size (that might be 100g) the vet will chip but it is only advisable to have a vet do it and a reputable reptile vet that can deal with tortoises.

Edited to say that I now see he is 2 yrs old - lol. Prob to young to tell in that case.
