Default Sexing Winter Whites?

I have a single (I think male) winter white hamster who is now about 10 months old now.

The rescue he came from was`nt sure if he was a she! I had a wee look yesterday and I`m `pretty` sure he`s a he, but is there a diagram somewhere I can compare with? It`s not something that bothered me to be honest because he is a lone hamster who is such a happy wee thing and I adore him (her?)

Thanks for reading. x

There is a link here about sexing Dwarf hamsters. It has pictures which are clearly labelled so I hope this helps!

Thanks a million pophammy! I knew I`d seen that link before so I must have thought it was just a regular posting by someone and never thought to look it up.

I`ll check Scooby later today and I realise the males have the scent gland higher up and the two `holes` below this!

Thanks for your help. x

I had a look the other night and although the `gap` between the anals looked wide apart, I still can`t see a scent gland! He has a crease that runs up his tummy when he stands up, so it could be hidden in there somewhere! I`ll be checking a few more times to make sure, but I`m sure Scoobs is a male! He`s so cheeky and playful. He`s never even attempted to bite since the day I got him and considering he was in rescue for seven months, that`s pretty good! If you place your hand in front of him, he`ll walk right onto it.
