Sexing chinchillas seems to be the leading cause of accidental pregnancies in chinchillas. NEVER trust the pet store to sex your chinchilla correctly.

You can sex chinchilla kits the moment they are born. These are pictures of two day old chinchilla kits and as you can see the difference in their gender is readily apparent.

Female Kit


Male Kit


This is a link to another great post on sexing chinchillas. The pictures give you a close up of the genitalia and an brief explanation of the various "parts".
