Default Re: Hamster gender?

Maybe watch "her" waddling around and have a look at the back end Females have a kind of rounded back end. Males have a sort of extra oval shape at the end (over the testicle area).

You can sort of see it from the side on this photo

It's particularly noticeable on Chinese hamster males, so that might help - Vectis's page on sexing chinese hamsters shows some good photos of a male back end
