Exclamation I sexed them right! but....

I had to double check my boys today, Bruce was giving me a scare.
He always mounts his son and then nibbles at the fur on Georges sholders, but tonight he was a bit more aggressive with the mounting and he actually had his penis out and looked like he was trying to mate his son!
Poor George wants nothing to do this, but Bruce is very presistant!

I took the mounting to be a sign of dominace, many animals do it, but in all the mountaing i've seen with rodents never did the dominant show off his 'manly bits'.

What's going on?

Thats normal "male" degu behaviour i'm afraid, sexually mature males tend to mount other males if no females are around

and we're SURE my girls are two girls, if ones a bit bigger and more dominant and all the fur is chewed off the other girls shoulders? sounds similar!

Haha, my boys are like that (well, just the dominant one). I feel bad for the submissive one sometimes because he just has to sit there and take it. Poor bugger.
