I adopted a 1 month old guinea pig from our local humane society. I was told the pig was a he and even inspected quickly when I got him. Well I must not have looked closely enough because now I am questioning if my pig is a she... Flip is 2 months old now.

Looks male to me. You should be able to feel a little ridge/bump over that dot (the penis) that is the shaft to the penis where your hand is positioned in that photo. By gently pushing up and in on that ridge, you should be able to extrude the penis.

We can't tell precisely looking only at what would be the penis (need clearer picture) - but it does look like some testicles are developing.

Sef has much more experience with boars than I have!

I could be wrong but looks like a sow to me. Like Lynx said a better picture might help. Good luck.
