I have two red ear slider turtles. How do you tell if they are male or female.

If they are old enough to tell you cna tell by their tails, toenails, and plastron.
The females tails are shorter and fatter, they sometimes have shorter toenails and their plastron is flat. Males have longer tails, shorter toenails, and their plastron has a bit of an indent in it to help \"spoon\" on top of the female.
