Default Female or male??

This ham is a chunker, so it was hard to get good pics of it amongst all the fat rolls I adopted it recently & it was in this tiny cage (smaller than a Crittertrail) with no wheel or enrichment...only substrate, a food dish FILLED with food, and a water bottle. I don't know the age of the hamster, the sex of the hamster, or how long it was in that tinny cage with nothing.

I can attach more pics if necessary.

I'm not 100% sure as the pics are kind of hard to distinguish, but I'd say female. I think a few more pics (maybe some with flash) would help

As Drago says, it is hard to tell from the photos. However, from the um “holes” and the shape of the bum, I would put my money on female.

I don't have any other photos with flash yet, but here's a video I took earlier today. Does this help?

Cute video! Both are working for me I'm actually going to say male now, as he looks a bit more male like in the video

In the videos you can see his bum does actually stick out at the back more than a females. So, I'd like to revise my opinion! I'll say male too.

Thank you all for trying to help! I do have to say this is the smelliest hamster I've had thus far! I'm tempted to name it Popcorn because that's exactly what the cage smells like. I've had 3 female dwarf hamsters, a female Chinese, and 3 Syrian hamsters and none has been this smelly

I'm starting to work towards taming, so hopefully there will be better pictures in the future. Regardless of it's sex, I am so happy that I got this little one out of the poor situation it was living in. Guess I'll just have to pick a name that would suit either sex! lol

Lol, at calling your cute hammy Popcorn due to the popcorn 'aroma'. I'm glad he/she is no longer in such a terrible living situation and you came to the rescue. Your little one sure is lucky to have such a loving hamparent to love and care for him/her. Be sure to let us know when you have the perfect name chosen for this cutie; I personally like the name Popcorn because of the humorous story behind it. Have fun taming! I look forward to seeing pics whenever she is settled in more and you have a chance. I can't wait to see what lovely adventures the two of you go on together. Eros waves a paw to you both, btw.
