hi layla. a few days ago u had asked if i knew how to tell age by the size. from what i\'ve researched, a hatchling is about the size of a quarter, so the guess of your res at 6 months sounds pretty accurate. my other painteds, all i know is that they are adult because of their size, i\'ll learn more as my baby grows. as far as sex, it takes a baby a few years of maturity to really be sure. even with research i was unsure of what sex bigboy(my 1st female,lol) was, i even took her to my local petstore & they weren\'t sure. i didn\'t figure it out until my daughter gave me my 1st male. a female has shorter claws than a male, & her cloaca opening is farther from the plastron, a male\'s is more lined up with the carapace. i suggest that you do more research, there is so much to learn. have fun with baby, your knowledge will grow as he does also.

That is actually backward, the male's cloaca is closer to the tip of the tail and the female's cloaca is closer to the plastron. :D
