I'm embarassed for my mice to have to say this but ... Their testicles are HUGE, like almost as big as their heads. Good thing for humanity too, as mice testicles may provide a source of stem cells free of the usual ethical considerations.They may also hold the solutions to transplant rejection and infertility. Is there anything those fuzzy globes can't do?

apart from those who would rather their testicles weren't experimented upon.

I, for one, welcome our fuzzy globed, hugely betesticled overlords etc etc

Why are mice balls so small?

Because very few of them know how to dance.

(from the first link): It's kind of depressing that I have atom_girl's chemistry book sitting next to my computer...

I've been bathing in mouse sperm for years, and it has done wonders for my complexion.

Don't tell Jin about this. She's a bit attached to her "Mobile Embryonic Research Stations" TM

Do mice fall under that "drug dealer pet" category with rats, tartantulas, and lizards?

The human body's immune system is the greatest enemy of transplanted cells and organs. But scientists have known that the testicles, brain and eyes are "privileged sites" where immunosuppression doesn't work.

I had no idea. This opens up a whole world of opportunities!

Y'know, you're right. I never noticed that. I mean, not that I, um, ever would.

I just feel sorry for the guy who's job it is to collect that. Can you say "repetitive motion injury?"

free of the usual ethical considerations

Unless, of course, one is an animal rights activist.

My pet rat Virgil was legendary in college. Had a lot more women tickling his balls than I did, that's for sure.
