hey guys one of the most frequent

questions I get asked is how to tell the sex of your hamster and this is especially difficult when your house it isn't tame and so you can't just pick them up and flip them over and tell what it is so the easiest way to check the sex with an untamed hamster is to put them into a clear container now we have just bought potassium home I am double triple quadruple checking that she is a female before I puts her into her cage so what I've done is I've transferred her from the travel cage into this but if you want to check the sex of the half step while you result the shop or the rescue center or wherever you are the best thing to do is to just take a clear travel cage with you now of course this one has substrate in you'd have to take a separate one that didn't have substrate in but if you're just going to do it at home you can just put them into a glass container once they're in the glass container checking their sex is as simple as just lifting the container up and having a look and you may have to do this for quite some time you might have to wait for them to sort of reveal themselves or stand on their back legs but this really is the easiest way of

doing it now looking at the hamster is nice and easy but what exactly are you looking for well with females one of the easiest ways to tell that they're a female is by looking for nipples male hamsters don't have nipples so if you see them on your hamster it's going to be a female of course that's not always easy to see sometimes their fur Copas it up with potassium here she has quite obvious one she doesn't have much fur around the area so they were easy to spot but like I say it's not always that easy so the other most obvious way to tell them apart is simply by checking their genitals now with female hamsters they have two holes that are quite close together that's their vagina and their anus and usually there isn't any hair around this area so it looked like a small bald patch at the base of your hamsters body now with males there's usually a slightly larger gap between the anus and the penis you won't see the penis itself you'll just see sort of like a belly button I suppose in the middle of their stomach you should also note that there's usually hair between the penis

Naina's unlike with females who don't have anything around that area now another obvious thing to look out for males is their testicles now with Syrian hamsters and Chinese hamsters these tend to be more obvious especially with the Chinese who are well known for leaving theirs out shall we say now it should be noted that male hamsters can and do retract their testicles inside their body when they're feeling cold so just because you don't see testicles doesn't guarantee that it isn't a male if you're buying a pair of dwarf hamsters and you're a little bit worried because you can't tell whether they're male or female the safest thing to do is to just make sure they both have genitals but look the same that way whether they're male or whether they're female it won't matter because you'll have a pair of the same and you shouldn't end up with any accidental pregnancies if you are really in doubt about what sex your hamster is and you just can't figure it out the best thing that you can do is to either take it to your vet to ask them or if you can take a picture of their genitals and ask on a hamster form

they're usually very good at figuring out the sex very quickly so there we are that is how you tell the difference between a male and female hamster I really hope this video has been useful so many of you have been asking for it so I have finally got around to doing it if you did find it useful please don't forget to leave us a thumbs up to help sports channel you can also share this video with your friends and subscribe to the channel if you haven't already also if you haven't yet check out potassium intro video go and check it out because she's the cutest a little darling ever seriously she's adorable thanks so much for watching this video guys and I'll see you next time bye bye [Music] [Music] male hamsters don't have nipples so if you love why are you laughing at your balls sniffles sniffles they'd have nipples now of course the other thing you can look for in males is their testicles with a felony yogurt I saw you I thought it was very very supposed to be professional for just King out talked about the penis

do you yeah I'm a grown up I should be able to talk about genitals alone killing
