Hi everyone,

I've been keeping a pair of whitewater rosys for about a year, and produced a nice litter of six neonates about two weeks ago. They've all shed, and some have taken their first meal already. All in all, it's gone well so far.

For the experts out there, I'd like some advice on sexing the newborns. My reading elsewhere tells me that you can get a reliable indication of sex by the presence or lack of spurs. Have you found this to be the case? If I can visually sex them, I certainly won't go to the trouble of trying to probe them. Does anyone have a pic showing the spurs on a newborn? It would be great to have a visual guide. Thanks for any help.
