I have brought an Indian flapshell turtle at my home but I am unaware regarding its sex So please help me to find the gender of my pet

    The most reliable way to get an answer is to take the turtle toa vet who specializes in reptiles. Failing that, websearching "determine sex turtle" finds a number of suggestions in details of shell shape, tail and cloaca shape, lengthof claws, size, and so on. None of those are 100% reliable but when taken together they may answer your question.

Males tend to have a longer thicker tail than a female only when they are fully grown. Females tend to have shorter nails also. The males have longer nails on their front feet. This is in general of turtles.
