Help!! Cant tell the gender of my new rat

Post by katiepk-95 » Sat Sep 05, 2015 5:59 am

I adopted this rat from a petstore a few days ago, and they told me he was a boy with his balls "tucked up." Is he really a boy? I've looked at just about every website about sexing rats and I go back and fourth between male and female. Any feedback would be much appreciated!!

Unfortunately the link to the picture doesn't work. Can you see any nipples on the rat?
Officially ratless. Groot, Star-lord, Yondu adopted by another rat lover.

Compare your rat against the pictures in this article, the easiest way to tell is to look for a vagina.

If you haven't got any same sex (and same age if it's a kitten) company, then I recommend finding another rat asap.
