Hey all you breeders - and even you generally knowledgeable folks

If you had a male glider who was 22 weeks old and did not have even a hint of a bald spot and you were unable to feel anything in his scrotum/pom, would you be getting worried? Or would you give it more time before getting concerned?

You do not have a hermaphrodite do you?? I think I would be a bit worried. But he might be just a late bloomer. Maybe his testicles just did not drop?
I would give him more time as long as he is healthy in every other way. Maybe have him tag along to the next vets visit fr a quick check.

Thats what? about 5 months OOP? Ive had them start as late as 6 months but that is NOT the norm around here, normally by 4-5 months OOP they have the start of a bald spot, and there is def something in the pom!...Although I myself would give him until 6 months old before getting concerned
