Default Male or female?

Hi! I thought that in chinese hamsters was always easy to know if it is a female or a male, but now I don't know if I have a boy and a girl or two boys!...

Here is my boy:


And here is my girl, I think:


And here are some more photos of the girl (or boy):


What is your opinion?

Thank you!

The pics do look like a male. The vents are quite far apart and there looks to be signs of the testicles coming down.
Compare the distance between the two vents in the known male and the unsure one. Do they look about the same distance?
One might be younger and the testicles have not descended yet.
Adult male chinese are very obvious though

The three smaller pictures are a Male. The vents are far apart & you can clearly see the testicles. Hope that helps. Is the other one a girl
If you have two of the opposite sex it will be easy to spot it as the males scrotum is normally large in chinese hamster. I love chinese hammies & yours are lovely.

Hi!! Thank you for your answers!!!

It is "the girl" in the three smaller pictures. The other hamster have a big scrotum and "the girl" hasn't! Maybe is younger and for that I thought it was a girl, no?

In the shop they said it was a boy and a girl... Now it will not be easy to get a girl, because chinese hamsters are rare here.

It definately looks like a boy to me as the girls you will not see hardly any gap between opening. I have the same problem here as I cannot get a chinese Girl anywhere. I presume the breeders are maybe hanging on to them. I will keep searching though. good Luck
