    New here! :)) Question about the sex of my guinea pig. Please help!

    Hi there everyone. I am brand new to this site and I came here for the purpose of hopefully having someone being able to determine the sex of my guinea pig. Or at least help me get an idea of what s/he is.
    I got my piggie from a friend who could no longer afford it. I have had him/her for a couple of months and everything has been going well. I am looking into getting Chulo a friend, but since I am not 100% sure on the sex, I do not want to get another yet. I will attach some photos. (Chulo was not a fan of my trying to take pictures of his/her privates so they aren't too great). There are no obvious testicles, there is a bump down there, which I have seen in both pictures of males and females. I am so confused!
    If anyone could help me out I would really appreciate it.
    Thank you!

    Welcome!

    Here are two sites that can help you determined the gender
    http://www.guinealynx.info/sexing.html and Sexing Guinea Pigs: How to Sex a Guinea Pig

    Looks like a male to me.

    ETA: Have you tried to apply pressure to see if a penis comes out?

    My friend has had it for over a year and I have had it for probably close to 3 months now. Is that still considered to be young?

    Looking closer at the bottom picture I'm now about 99.9% sure Chulo is a male, But others might not agree

    To me, the pig looks like a male, but i would still recommend you to look at the links RodentCuddles linked

    I say thats a dude! Perhaps he was neutered and that is why there aren't obvious testicles?
