this is kinda a weird but i'll it anyways...
I have a male hedgehog and obviously he has genitals parts i was just wondering if they have
balls? :roll:

sorry but i am just curious, coz i saw my hedgies belly (in the area where u can see the tail and the male thing) is kinda big or bloated am not sure if those are the right terms but yeah..

so am just wondering if that is just part of his male thing or he's jus full or something else?... i try to take a picture last night but it wont transfer to my computer i dont know why...

thanks.

Yes, male hedgehogs have testicles. They are carried half inside the body, and half outside... which I'm sure is handy for a little critter that runs around on the ground all day. ;)

Koko,

Chances are yes, if you are seeing a bulge of swelling back near his tail you are seeing your hedgehog's testicles. They are more noticeable on some males than others (so if someone is reading this and you don't see anything don't worry).

Also remember testicles in most warm blooded creatures are self temperature regulating,,,, which means sometimes they are farther away from the body to cool off or will move closer or even into the body cavity to warm up. So his "package" may not look the same at different times.
