    Confirm sex of guinea pig?

    Hello! I've gotten Sir (?) Basil for almost 2 months now and he's supposed to be male. He's currently around 1.5 years old according to the lady who gave him to me. Please let me know if you need more photos. Thank you!

    Compare him to http://www.cavyspirit.com/sexing.htm.

    If he's male, you'll be able to feel the bone in the penis by pushing your finger across his abdomen, right at his genitalia. If you press down and toward his feet, you may be able to extrude the penis if he has one.

    But if he's male, those are the smallest testicles I've ever seen.

    I was wondering for a few days cause it looks kinda like a thorn (if that makes any sense) but I've try to press my fingers around it to see if anything came out

    and now it's confirmed that its Missus Basil instead of Sir Basil haah
