 Boy or girl?

Hello people. I am 13 years old and am getting a tortoise tomorrow. I would just like to know how you tell if it’s a boy or girl. The previous owners think it’s male but say that it is only 9 months so they are not sure. Could you please help me to find out?
I do not have a picture.

what kind of tort is it??
there have been extensive and costly research projects performed to try and determine the sex of baby sulcatas....It has proven impossible as of yet........by the time they are 1 yr old, you should be able to determine its’ sex........

here is a link to a pg that shows how to guess your torts sex....basically, it says that if ur tort holds its tail to the side, then its most likely a male...otherwise, if it has a short little tail that sticks out straight, its most likely a female...the link has pics, so go there and see what u think and let us know!!!

Well I would just like to say thank you very much. You have really helped me. Now I am almost certain that Boris is a boy. Well I hope so seen as I named him BORIS! But I have read somewhere that u can realise that they are actually not the original sex that u thought they were! If that happens I’ll change his name to Doris. Thanks again
