You can tell generally by the size, but once it's an adult, you an get an idea by how smooth the scutes are on the carapce (top shell). The shell wears down over time. The truth is, the only way to know for sure is to be ther when the tortoise hatches.

PS Red-foot tortoise males can be 20 inches long.

I hope this helps you.
