I found an infant flying squirrel (aproximately 3 weeks
old) but cannot tell it's gender. It has what looks like a penis, but
the penis points toward its anus. Is it a boy?
If the genital opening is near the anus, it is probably a female.
Squirrel males should have a scrotum sac, but juveniles may not be
mature enough to tell.
