Gender of Mouse

Post by BambaSnack on Wed 21 Feb 2018, 9:50 pm

This is my first post so hi everyone.

About a month ago, I bought a pregnant mouse and it gave birth to three babies. I am positive of the gender of two of them, girls, so I can keep them with my other three adult mice but I am not so sure about the third. I was having trouble taking a picture of the little mouse so this is the clearest shot I could get. The baby mice are around a month old and I would like to separate them before they can reproduce. I will probably post more pictures at different angles if no one can tell from this one.



I'm not sure if I posted the picture correctly. Hopefully it appears properly.

From the back it looks similar to a picture of a male mouse. Once again I failed at taking a clear picture. I'm hoping these will be helpful as well.

I don't have a whole lot of experience with sexing, but I'd definitely say that the little one looks like a boy. I'd separate him from the girls, as I believe they can technically begin to reproduce at 4 weeks. @BambaSnack

Like chiroptera, I don't have lots of experience with sexing, but I'd say that mouse is a male. If they are a month old, it means you should seperate them really soon, as they are about old enough to begin reproducing.

Dont worry, so long as you give him attention, boys are perfectly fine living alone. They cant even live with other girls unless you neuter em.

He's a lovely looking boy!! Love

I understand the feeling; my one male seemed super lonely. Sad

Going to the pet store tonight to buy the rest of the supplies for him. Hopefully my dad will allow me to buy him some a little more toys. I named him Taffy thinking he was a she.

Nothing wrong with Taffy for a boy. There was a telly series from the 1950s called "The Buccaneers", starring Robert Shaw as reformed pirate Captain Dan Tempest. One of Cap'n Tempest's crew members was named Taffy.

I used to get up at 6:00 am on Sundays to watch reruns of "The Buccaneers" and "Sergeant Preston Of The Yukon" on KTLA Channel 5 in Los Angeles. Very little else could get me up that early on Sunday. How I loved "my shows" -- way better than Saturday cartoons! Now I have them in boxed sets on DVD and I still enjoy them.

Good luck with your new boy! Smile


Just for future reference males have a much wider gap between their anus and their bits, they tend to stick out more into a shaft too while females its a much closer gap and their bits tend to go in, making a Y shape, nipples are also a good way to tell genders apart as males won't have any Smile


Sorry for mousey butts Laughing
