" Examine the thickness and length of the tail. Male turtles often have fatter and longer tails than the female.[6][7] Check out the bottom Look at the bottom or underbelly of the turtles shell. If the plastron (bottom shell) is convex, goes out, it's probably a female. If its bottom shell is concave (rounded) or goes in toward the inside of the body, then the turtle is most likely a male. The reasoning behind this is that the females convex plastron provides more room for eggs, while the males concave plastron fits better over the females when mating. Claws Look at the turtles front or fore claws. Most male turtles have very long front claws.[11] Males use these claws in courtship. Note that the back claws are usually the same for both genders and that claw size doesn't hold for all species of turtles. However, if a male is a late bloomer or has been kept in inadequate conditions, the claws may not be noticeably longer. Check the turtles size. Check the turtles size. If you have more than one turtle, you can compare the sizes. In most species, the female turtle is larger. But the difference is usually very small, and you need to keep in mind that there are size variations within a gender too, so only use this sign along with many others."
