Hello. New blood here. Just wanted to introduce myself and say hello to all my fellow turtle lovers on here. I just adopted two adorable little guys last year. In fact this month will be their full year adoptaversary. I am glade I found this forum so I can get insights to help make sure they stay healthy, happy members of the family.

Not from a expert. But the person I adopted them from claims they are male and female. I have seen my bigger one tickle the little ones face . But then again the little one does the same to the big one. So I am not 100 % positive on that. He was wrong about everything else. Basterd had them in a 10 gallon for 7 or 8 years of their lives.

If they are that old, it should be easy to tell. Do either have long claws?

Both of them have long claws actually, but the lines on the supposed female are a lot higher up. The cloacha ? ( spelling?) so it's been hard for me to confirm.
