    Hello,
    One of my gerbils seem to have a red lump/ abscess right between his testicles. He behaves normal and doesn't seem to be bother by it. I'm not sure it is something normal as I am pretty sure it comes and goes ( he had it yesterday but I didn't see it later on in the day...)

    Thank you,
    Nazz

    How is he now?

    I would suggests vets, even if he seems ok now, just to have him checked over

    Could be a prolapsed bowel. I’d get him checked at the vet.

    I second the prolapse. Best go to the vet before other organs follow it out too
