I'm sure you are thinking it might be a bit odd that I suddenly want to determine the sex of a woodchuck....so I will explain further.<br><br><br><br>
Ok, my parents have a garden and a pair or group of woodchucks is ruining it.<br><br>
Yesterday they trapped an adult woodchuck and relocated hir. Concern arose of whether the woodchuck may be a nursing mother. Therefore I became determined to tell what gender the woodchuck was. Not an easy task when one has a hissing, tooth chatting, angry woodchuck in a trap who only wants to face you. I had my father lift up the trap, look from underneth and still could not tell. I figured if there's two lumps down there, it's a boy right?. Then we don't have to worry about the nursing mother situation.<br><br>
What I saw baffled me. I saw what looked like a lump with three tubes coming out of it. Do woodchucks like have three penises or was I looking at the teats of a nursing mom?.<br><br><br><br>
The deeds done as the woodchucks was taken away last night. My parents would not agree to wait over uncertain gender and my mom just said other people just shoot them dead. We know where the woodchuck had a burrow ,but I would be unable to access it as it's under a small woodshed.

I thought your thread was about how to have sex with woodchucks. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/pimp.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":tame:"><br><br><br><br>
But seriously, you might try to paint the woodchuck before releasing it. Otherwise, how do you know that the woodchuck you are releasing won't return to your yard?

Gender of woodchuck question

What you were seeing were the scent glands that are located directly inside the anus. They come out when a woodchuck (male or female) is annoyed, stressed or when they want to mark their territory.

Determining whether an animal is male or female is called "sexing" it. So the title isn't really misleading.

Aren't woodchucks a species of rodent? In my experience, rodent males have large, easily visible testicles. If you didn't notice any, it was probably a female or young male.

Glad I could contribute... lol!

Groundhogs should not be removed as a "mercy" move because other would "shoot him dead". There are a LOT of ignorant people out there and we don't want to put ourselves in a position of measuring our actions by theirs. If the welfare of the animal is not the first concern (and it should be...it's there land too) paining must be done with non toxic paint.
