My turtles are about 1 1/2 years old. One is bigger than the other because one stopped eating for a few motnhs. Anyway, they both flutter their arms at each other. What does this meanand when can I tell if they are male or female?

For RES, you should be able to tell their sex when their shells are about 4 inches in length.
