Unless of course we are talking about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, most real life turtles all look exactly the same. So how can you tell if they are male or female?
There are two common ways to tell them apart. First is to listen closely. Apparently female turtles will hiss, and male turtles will grunt. The other visual way to tell them apart is by their tail. Female turtles typically have short skinny tails, while males have longer thicker tails.
