When I first introduced Papoe in this blog, in a post called Introducing Papoe; I wrote these sentences:

Papoe is still 3,4 cm x 3,5 cm in wide and height, this measurement is not enough to  tell his gender yet…however, I need to refer him to either she or he (I don’t want to call Papoe as ‘it’). Until he is at least 8 cm in height, I will always call him as my boy. But I need to remind you that HE COULD BE A SHE ONE DAY😉

Well…he is that big now AND Papoe is no longer a boy, Papoe is a GIRL. I have suspected that since last year but I waited till she is big enough. There is no doubt anymore for me.

Look at this picture:


Her cloaca is sooo close to her plastron.

In this second picture, her tail is very short and small.


Those two are the signs of female turtle.

No wonder Papoe has such a cute smile…it’s a girl’s smile 😉


Look at how pretty she is with ribbon and nail-paint


 I have two girls now…and amazingly, these two girls often bully my only boy 😉

    Wow! He is a she! I went through that too! My human thought I (Slate) was a boy until my human looked at our nails and cloaca. 🙂

  3. Oh my…..I think she has been spending too much time with Bruce Jenner 😉

    She is beautiful and doesn’t need a bow for her beauty to shine through. Nail paint? Too cute!

      Thank you PB!!!
      Ah, now I remember, it’s nail polish. I have been thinking about it since I wrote it. I was too lazy to google the English words for it 😉 Thank you
