How to sex turtles

My friend has a red ear slider turtle and were wondering how to tell the sex of it. Can anyone help us ? Thanks much.

males have long front claws and short tails. males also have their cloaca further down their tail, as females have it closer to their bodies.

of course, you cant determine gender until the rez it at an adult size, and even then they ca surprise you.
