Male or Female

Post by Megan8121 on Thu 19 Apr 2018, 8:20 pm

So I bought six adorable supposedly female mice from the pet store; already one has been male and I had to return it (which was extremely sad because I knew he would be snake food). Now, I keep thinking I see little tiny balls on several of the mice. When I look closer, it looks more like just kind of a puffy spot though. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to be more sure?

do you have any idea how old the mice are? if they are over 4 weeks of age there is a possibility that you may have some pregnant does if you have males. here is a picture of the difference between males and females... you can put them one by one in a clear plastic container and hold it above your head and take a look at their underside.

Okay, using that photo I was able to confirm that five are definitely female. This one is the only one we aren't sure about (and of course, she's my favorite). She has such long fur and she's younger than the others, so it's very hard to tell.

Any suggestions?

Also, thank you so much for posting that. I was literally having a panic attack thinking I might not be able to keep ALL of them if they were all male.

That might be easier to tell

I can't tell from your pictures. The best way to figure out sex if you can't find nipples is to look for a vaginal orifice. This picture shows where it is and what it looks like.


If you'd like to try for a clearer picture, put your mouse on a solid surface and gently but firmly lift their backside by the base of the tail, as is bring done in the pic above. This keeps ypur mouse under control and gives you a clear view.
