Male Gopher Tortoise tail, right Ashley?
I know tails are a good way to distinguish sex on aquatic turtles, but I'm not sure that it works on tortoises? The best way for them is to look at the underside to see if the plastron is concave or not. Males are concave to fit onto females better for mating.
