    2nd opinion on sexing GP for possible adoption

    Looking for a 4th guinea pig for my herd. I know sexing is hard without seeing in person but I figured I would ask for a 2nd opinion. This guinea pig is reportedly female but I am a bit concerned as she looks a bit low hanging ... so are they tested or just weight? She is a bit over 2 years. Her current owner says she often dirty there and it sounds like they do anal sac cleaning. I tried walking through the bone/extension of penis test and the owner says she couldn't get anything to extend out per the tutorials.

    Any input is helpful!

    Yes that guinea pig looks very distinctly male, I am very confident in saying that is a definite male from those images alone.

    It is much more reliable to feel for firm line of the bone rather then trying to expose the penis with someone inexperienced, however if they do not have an actual sow to compare to they may not fully comprehend the difference in how a sow vs how a boar feels there.

    I'll throw my hat in the ring here as well.

    That's definitely a boy piggie.

    Thank you for the feedback! I felt like I was crazy as the owner had housed the pig with another and no one was pregnant, but I suppose they both had matching genitalia. Very sad to not be able to save him but it is what it is :(
