Default What is normal for Hamsters Penis?

hi! so this is very embarrassing but ive never owned a male hamster, well last night i just adopted my first one! i inspected him before taking him home the best i could (hes very young so hes not tame) and he seemed very healthy

today he was cleaning himself and he stuck his penis out, it looked very pink but it wasnt bloody, he is going to the bathroom fine too
is this normal? should i be worried? he is a syrian and hes about 4-6 weeks

here are a few pictures:

It looks OK to me though the pictures are very large so it is hard to see exactly what is what. He was likely just cleaning himself but keep an eye on things as they can get infections or penile prolapses which would need treatment by a vet. It's good that you get used to what is normal because then you can see when something has changed and does not seem normal.

Looks ok to me. Sometimes they get it out to clean it then it goes back in and isn't really noticeable (like the last picture)
