How do I tell if a Florida soft-shell turtle is male or female?


Answer by  worker3014 (15)

It is hard to tell the gender of a Florida soft-shell turtle until it is juvenile or adult in size. The male turtle will have a skinny, long tail, whereas the female will have a shorter, kind of stubby tail. Also, female turtles grow much larger than what male turtles do.
