HI I recently got another redear slider he/she is a baby and I don't really know if that makes it harder to tell the sex but I know males have really long claws but I don't really see long claws so I think it might be a girl but he/she also has lots of pattern and I thought females don't have much pattern any help is appreciated thank you!

I do not think reptiles conform to the rules of other creatures. Pretty sure coloration has little to do with their gender. The claws are the fastest way to sex the, but you can probably look at their tails and then the curvature of the bottom shell and get a good idea as to its gender. From my understanding, shorter, fatter tails (especially at the base) are female.

Yeah he/she kinda has a stubby tail but I think it was bullied a lot before I got him/her I compared it to my other redear Bella and I think it might be a girl but I was going to wait and see if his/her claws grow any bigger to decide its for sure a girl

I have read girls have a flatter bottom shell and boys have a sent in the bottom shell for breading reasons. But I'm not sure how true this is
