Question Fancy bear hamster?? Boy parts appeared over night??

So we have had our new lil baby since Sept, so approx 5mths old give or take, and just today we noticed what we thought was our lil girl is now a boy, cuz over night she/now he grew a pair..lol
I researched this and it says if a male hamster is too hot it descends its testicles. Is this true and why haven't we seen them before??? My children are very sad cuz they wanted a girl..so is this common?

Default Re: Fancy bear hamster?? Boy parts appeared over night??

Hello, syrian males often do have large noticeable testicles and yes heat can make them "saggier". If your hamster is long haired then you may not have noticed as much.

A female will have noticeable lines of nipples.

Regarding your children, why did they want a female? Female syrians go into heat every few days and can be harder to please, often needing a larger set up than males.

But whatever sex, gender shouldnt matter and you should communicate that to your children that it is still the same hamster they have loved.

Smile All good with a boy just unexpected

We didn't specifically want a girl, we just thought it was. She, now he, was bday gift 4 my daughter, who has 6 older brothers, so it was more of a she wanted 2 have more females in the house. The night I posted his "boys" were just so prominent & it seemed outta the blue so she was worried, I assumed it was normal, but just obviously was taken by surprise. She's adjusted & he is a sweet heart, very social just wants 2 get out & hang with her constantly. Thank u 4 the response!
