My mouse's "privates"

High ive had my mouse since august and i know he is a male, mainly b/c he smells, he has a boy peepee organ =D. anyway i kno people have trouble sexing mice sometimes but i had no trouble at all mainly b/c my mouses testicles hang out of his body. is this normal? or is there something wrong. i'm asking because the pictures ive seen of male mice and rats dont generally have external testis.

Could you take a pic? What do you mean that they hang out? On my mice the balls are very noticeable. Sometimes they're not when they're really young, but if they're older then a few months, they'll be noticeable. It's probably nothing, the mouse just isn't retracting them.

Yeaah...it's the same with rats sometimes...they're in, a lot of times when I'm holding them too. You have to squeeze their abdomens a little bit and they just drop right out.

normally they hang...when they are frightened they will retract their testicles into their bodies

by far the easiest way to sex mice is to check for nipples, males dont have them....also its better than seeing if their testicles have descended bc by then it may be far too late to prevent an unwanted pregnancy with the mispaired couple

he will be fine alone, at this pt an intro to another male mouse will most likely not work and will erupt in fights...he will do fine alone, just give him lots of attention

Speaking of fights, I was in a mall petstore(you know, one of those horrible ones that sells backyard breeded puppies and kittens and has like 20-30 hamsters per cage) and two male mice were just duking it out. They were bowling into everyone and kept charging back at each other if they lost grip of each other. Wasn't pretty!

Male mice can do fine by themselves =]
