Re: Girl or boy?
My family has had both males and females over the years. At this very moment, I have a male, but I love both. Each has its pros and cons. I'll give you a list of a few facts about each. Although, keep in mind that each hamster is in itself a different hammie. They each have their own personality. Who knows? You might get one that doesn't want to go with the "Status Quo". Hope this helps.
More likely to snuggle
Tends to be less smelly(not to me *mine tends to have a musky stink*)
Can't be pregnant
Usually has less health issues(infections, etc.)
Not as playful
Normally more vocal on needs or wants
Tend to be smelly when in heat(meh)
May have more health problems(infections and reproductive issues)
Again hope this helps you choose. Personally, I just let the hamster choose me. Can't wait to meet your new hammie! They will be extremely lucky to have you as an owner.
