    Do you think the Degu is male or female?

    The cone and anus look abit too close for what I am used too with my pair of males. What do you think?

    I would say female, although the picture quality is absolutley terrible, no offence.

    LOL I did not take it and the OP is trying to get me another.

    I am torn between male or female. I think female cos it's smaller gap than I am used to, then I change my mind because their is a gap of sorts.

    There is a gap on females it's just smaller then males... The males is massive compared to females (in adult goo's anyway)

    I am aware of that, it's just that the photo does not make it easy :)

    The Degu is about 12 months old so fully grown. Still waiting for another photo which will hopefully help get a better idea.

    Looks female to me, but a better picture would clear it up :)

    Will be getting another photo tomorrow. But the owner has followed my advice and read the pages on degutopia about sexing, and is leaning towards male. We will see once I get the other photo :)
