I got my new ratties, but I have a question...

Okay. Artie and Gussie are home. They are supposed to both be girls, but Artie's butt kinda looks like a boys. She's bigger than the other girl and she's chubbier. Do boy rats have nipples? If it is a boy, it's "boys" aren't very big. Could it just be that she's fat? I'm sooo confused. I don't need any babies. If it ends up that she's a he, I'll still keep it and find another boy. In a seperate cage from the girls of course. I'll post pics later tonight and I'll post one of Arties butt. Anyways, I'm gonna go.

Because I was born in the South, I'm a Southerner. If I had been born in the North, the West or the Central Plains, I would be just a human being.

If you could post a pic. of Arties whole "area" that would help. A male has a lot more room between his penis and anus, that's where the scrotum is. The distance between the clitoris( the thing that sticks out) and anus is much less on a girl basically right next to eachother. No a boy rat dosn't have nipples, but they can be hard to see on a young girl.
