Who would be a ram?

We were at the Royal Easter Show today. I love looking at the farm animals. We were in the ovine pavilion and noticed the rams. I never realised that a ram’s testicles hung that low. Bron explained that any higher and they would be kept too warm given the whole idea of external male gonads is to keep them slightly lower than body temperature.

Take a look at this dude’s sac.

Have you ever noticed how low they hang?
