no, i just went by the color variations and shell and the vets/herps i went to. I dont plan on having any mating or breeding with my turtle so that is out of the question. my turtle has the eyes of a male, the colors and head of a male, tail of a female (sorta) its really shorter than any turtle i have ever seen, the bottom(plastron) of the shell is more female than anything. The first turtle specialist i took him to said hermaphrodite, the second (recommended) herp i took him too confirmed aswell it was a mixed. He found it very interesting and said that it was uncommon to see such things but he has seen it happen before. He told me that he had a box turtle for over 12 years and said it was a male until one day it layed eggs. He said that some species of box turtles can change sexes over years, even months kinda like frogs. I dunno, i named him a male name so ive just stuck with that name. I bought my turtle from a place near here that is no longer around anymore. It was the last turtle left aswell. Im guessing the other turtles were much more colorful and thats why nobody picked him. Oh well. Im glad with my choice!!
