    Default Gender ID my fox squirrel!!!

    Hi everyone!
    So…I’m now thinking I may have identified Earl incorrectly!!! Being a new squirrel mom I figured the little bits between the legs were male parts but now that we’ve had Earl for 2 months I think I was mistaken!?! Maybe Earl is a girl??? Anyone here an expert of fox squirrel parts by chance and can help me ID our baby!?
    Thanks!
    XO,
    Earl or maybe now Earlene’s mom! Ha!

    Earl is a girl! She's Earliegirl!

    Penis would be about an inch above Earl's apparatus, and it is unmistakable. When I was first introduced to my now late Mister P, laying eyes closed in the dirt with ants all over him, I was asked "What is it?" My answer was "A boy."
