    sexing is usualy doenby looking at tail length and ventral shell shape,
    teh latter is supposedly only distinguishable at adult age adn the tail mushc earlier, females have a very short tail adn males have a long tail to be simple. though i have never looked into how accurate it is, someoen else will tell you i am sure.

    um and breeding all i knwo abotu breeding turtles is that it is much easier if you let them do their own thing ina pond outside.

    cheers

    ok on the basics, get a drosal view of the turtle (put it on the ground and look at it from above) and for a feamle the tail should jsut make it [ast the dorsal shell length. whiel the male should be far enoguh past that the vent is past the end of the shell.
