I have two turtles, one is an Eastern Painted and one is a Mississippi Map. There are both about 4 solid inches, and they're both approximately one year old.

Besides their young age, I have no turtles of the same species to compare either of them to, so I have no real idea of their genders.

Here's my question. A few months ago, they both started the vibrating/waving hands thing with each other. Does this say anything about their genders? Can males and females both flutter? How can I tell if it's a mating thing or an aggression thing?

And lastly, does fluttering indicate anything about sexual maturity? Or can they do it at any age?

Thanks for any help. Much appreciated!
