Sexing a Musk Turtle

We've acquired a four-inch "musk" turtle. It was the lone representative of its species at a pet store, kept with a couple of similar-sized red-eared sliders.

How can we tell "its" sex?

Is it safe to keep the musk turtle and a red-eared slider in the same tank? We are keeping them separate at the moment (we always keep new arrivals separate until we know how healthy they are). In the future, though, it would be more convenient to keep the two turtles in the same tank, if it's safe.

Thanks.
