these are my darling baby rats-only there's a problem...I think they may be male and female! Can you guys tell if one is male and the other is female by these pictures?

Re: oh no! Help please!

Well, those pictures are a bit hard to tell from.

Here's a good page on sexing rats: http://www.ratz.co.uk/sexingrats.html

At that age it should be apparent and they can breed, so I hope they're not a mix. :?

My boy (and his bits) at 3 mnths:

Re: oh no! Help please!

Ide keep them separate because they can breed now and a young rat, at that age, having been bred, WILL have difficulties giving birth. I'm also guessing you got them at a pet store? Seeing breeders and rescues are clear on sexing. It happens, getting a certain sex from another. Just keep an eye on her now for weight gain and behavior.

i would need to see better pictures of both (with perhaps their tail dangling down) to be able to be completely certain.
