Hello! You probably get a lot of sexing questions, but you know how it is as a newbie :p

I received a new mouse and it was from the feeder bin at the zoo. Generally they have given me properly sexed mice but this one is very tiny (a bit too young, I'm thinking 3-4 weeks) and I'm not sure they sexed it right. I asked for a female, but I'm suspicious he is a male. There are no visible teats and I cannot see a continuous line between the anus and urethra. Testicles are not very visible but it occasionally seems like he has a bulge. I added some pics. Thanks ahead!Is this mouse a male? 20180610

In this picture from the side it does KIND of look like there might be a hole there, i.e a vaginal orifice... maybe just wishful thinking...?

Unfortunately, I think you are right. Looks male to me, the distance between the anus and urethra is very large, in a female this would be a lot closer together.

Thanks! Yes I agree, but at the same time, my other mouse who is definitely a female also has a pretty wide gap between the two parts, not like the doe on the picture, so that's the confusing part. However, my other mouse still has visible teats and a continuous anogenital line, but this little boy definitely doesn't.
