Sex of Stirling
Posted: 20/02/2012 by stirling

Hi all,

I was wondering if someone could offer advice to the sex of my hermanns - Stirling.

He is 9 years old and have always thought and been told by vets that he is male. However my sister has a hermanns too who is only about 4 years old but his tail is a lot longer and pointy than Stirling's.

Look forward to your responses!

Dave & Stirling

Hi Dave & Stirling

Definitely a female, may need to change name to Shirley if stirling is named after stirling Moss

Hi Jane,

Thanks for that - i had wondered if that was the case. She was very small when she first went to the vets. She is in fact named after Stirling Moss but think I will keep her named the same.

I am pleased though as i hope to breed one day in the future.

Thank you again
