How do I know if my two baby (8 months) African Sulcata Tortoise's are Male or Female? How old are they when they mate?

Sexing a Turtle or Tortoise
by: Shelly

Your babies are too young to tell their sex right now. When they are older, you can use the information on this page to tell who's who.

Tortoises don't mate by age, but by size. But in general, a sulcata will mate at about 5-8 years of age.

Keep it slow and steady.
