How old do RESs have to be before you can tell their sex?? I have two and they were both about the same size when I got them, but now, one is much bigger than the other. I\'m assuming the bigger one is the female, but I dunno. Oh yeah, they\'re both about a year old and are flat on the bottom. Thanks!

I\'m not sure, mine are still too small to be able to tell, I thought one was male and the other female, but it seems that I had it backwards:D

they say it is almost impossible to tell until they are like 4 inches..but yeah that\'s what i mean there are many ways u can tell..the one growing faster is most probably the female..the shop where i got my turtles from also could tell from their bottom shells if it has a small bump or not by feeling it..my turtles are still too young too but one is much bigger than the other and the smaller one (the guy i assume) has a longer tail and nails
