So I ended up adopting a rat from petsmart. The little one was in a cage all by itself and was labeled as a female fancy rat. However, now we've had it for a week and I'm not so sure the petsmart was right. Lil'Bit as 'she' was dubbed looks to have a bit more junk in the trunk than my other female rats.

I've looked at a lot of sites that show how to sex your rat and I'm still not sure. My mom and I keep waffling back and forth. Lil'Bit is about 3 months old, maybe 4 months. I've included a picture below of her genitalia.

From the picture she definitely looks like a female rat. There is a tiny hole under her nub. Male rats wouldn't have that. wink Male rats also don't have nipples, so she is definitely a female. CongRATS!


This was one of my male rats:
