Sexing a Joey

Sexing a Joey



Every joey has an extension from the cloaca when they come out of pouch. This extension is commonly mistaken for a penis. To determine the sex of a joey, you need to look for a pouch on a female, and the scrotum (commonly referred to as a "pom") on the male. Both the pouch and scrotom are located on the belly where you typically would expect to see a "belly-button".

This photo shows a side view of the extension of the cloaca. This is used by the parents to stimulate the joey to eliminate.
This photo shows the pouch of a female joey. It will appear as a small slit on the belly area.
This photo shows the scrotom (or Pom) of a male sugar glider. The scrotom is located on the belly above the cloaca.
