He’s a boy!!

SCL is almost 4″, tail looks bigger than Cinderella’s, claws seem bigger too. This all made me think Rex was a male turtle. But, It’s possible the claws and tail looked bigger since he’s a much bigger turt than Cinderella.

But wait no more, Rex showed us he was a male. He fanned (showed his manhood) to us! So now there is no more doubt. He’s a boy!!

I’m relived too, I’m glad he’s male so he won’t get too large…not that a male RES won’t get large, he will. But just up to 8″, not 12″.

So now we wait for Cinderella…. I’m hoping she’ll be a boy too so she won’t get so big…She’s much shyer and smaller than Rex. We’ll just have to wait a few more months when she’ll be over 4″ so we can tell what she is.

Anyway, Rex is a boy!!
