Male and Female snapping turtles show their gender difference mostly in the tail. The male's tale is thicker and longer than the female. Snapping turtles have a vent and the male's vent is further from the plastron.

How do you tell a female snapping turtle from a male?

The difference between a female snapping turtle and a male snapping turtle is the difference in their tales. Each snapping turtle has a small cirlce looking shape on theie tale. If it is a female snapping turtle, it's circle will be closer to the shell (or the butt) an if it is a male snapping turtle, the circle will not neccesarily be at the end of the tail, but it is certainly not near the shell (or butt). With most snapping turtles, it should be obvious, but with some, it is hard to tell, especially if their newborns (a week old or younger).
