Hi! Can anyone help me determine the gender of my mouse?

I'd really appreciate any help people could give - I'd like to get Scabbers a friend, but of course I'd have to know the gender before I can figure out if I should do that or not.

Hope those are clear enough to tell. Thanks again!

Here's a pic of the mouse, just for perspective/because I'm proud of the little cutie:

It's so confusing, because the pet store owner suspects they are male, and I've gotten mixed responses from other people. The two openings don't seem that far apart, but they don't exactly look like they are "connected" either.

Looks like a female to me as well, but I'm not 100% sure.

she is gorgeous, but i cant tell you with that resolution..how old is it? Easiest way would be to check for nipples...males wont have them and at this age it should be easy to tell...

hope that helps!

They are female...I am almost positive! I have raised many baby mice and rats,and by those pictures I am sure they are female!

Pet store employees rarely sex mice and rats properly,so I wouldn't trust them.

I saw a girl that couldn't sex month old rats. I held up Seva and said, ," see these, they are BALLS"...haha

It looks like a girl to me. When I'm sexing, I'll also hold the mouse in my hand to see if theres an extra bulge.

They are about 4 weeks old. Here's a better pic of Scabbers:


And her sister (?):





I've been watching for testicles to drop, but I haven't seen any, even when they eat...

I'm checking for nipples, but it's hard to see them - their fur is pretty long
