how to tell if my box turtle is male or female

Report as

One way to check if your turtle is male or female is by observing the tail. The male turtle has its vent located halfway from the shell and more near the tip of the tail. You can also use the claws, if is is female, the claws are very long. Go to http://www.wikihow.com/Tell-if-a-Turtle-Is-Male-or-Female for more details.

If the bottom of the shell if flat its a female, if its concave its a male. this is so when they breed and the male is on the back of the female he won't slip off.
