Just took these last night and thought I'd share. :)




They don't have names yet because I'm having trouble sexing them. Anyone want to guess from the photos? :p

They are cute. ^^ I think that if you want people to help sex them based on photos though, that you'll need to post photos of their undersides. I have no idea how to sex gerbils, but I'm sure that would help. :)

How cute!!! (I think you meant the guessing part to be a joke, right? judging by the tongue smilie... hehe.. cause I laughed... hehe)
Exactly. :p

I would like to get photos for you guys to help me sex them except I find most of the battle is holding them in a way where I can see the relevant parts anyway. They're quite small and fiddly and I'm a bit worried that I might damage them if I force them about.

Hahaha... Luciana is asking about the color. I thought they were golden agouti cause I remember seeing another pic of them. Golden agouti are brown with black ticking and black eyes. Grey agouti are grey with darked tricking and black eyes. REW/PEW = Ruby Eyed White/Pink Eyed White. They both look very similar, I think there's a difference in the eye, but I've never found good info about it. They are genetically different, though, that's why they separate the names. They are basically white with red eyes.
About the sexing... do you have a transparent bowl? Maybe you can put them there and let them walk, and look underneath. I've seen mice people doing it and it works... I've never seen it or tried it with gerbs, but it might work.

I kinda thought the first one was a siamese... but it coudl just be the lighting.

I like sexing them at 10 days with the nipple meathod (so much easier) I'm sure 'someone' will have a picture of male and female genitalia for you.
They are very cute babies :)

I've found a guide online for how to tell the difference, the problem is holding them. I may try the glass bowl trick.
