Testes can run very warm, and changed from a nice pink to a very red pink. Some rats have a furry covering with only the ends showing, others hang out the whole way :)

Yeah his ends are showing but they dropped recently because he is young , and i know rats testicals happen to be very big, and it looks like they are kinda getting in the way of things for him :-\ but i guess thats just normal, and what did you mean by warm? because erlier they were light pink and now they are dark pink, :eek: mayve im just seeing things, but the last time i had a rat was when i was 5-6 and it was a female so i am sortof new to males, i just got scared and thought sopmething was wrong, would it help if i post a picture of them tomorrow?

Feel his goolies and they will feel hot. Blood flow rushing to any area makes it hopper. :) Get used to goolies, unless you end up having your boy neutered :)

Goliath had some set of goolies at 4 weeks of age, he used to use them to sit on LOLOL

Looks like normal rat testicles to me. Nothing to worry about LOL

Rat balls are something else, they are daunting things to non rat owners xD

I'm having the same issue.

I have a boy who has quite big balls which are usually mostly furry.
He's 13-14 weeks old.

Last night I introduced two new baby boys one about 4 weeks I'm guessing and one about 5 weeks old. The 5 week old has some pink pertruding balls and is very dominant.

My 13 week old has been holding his own in some little scraps when I've socialised them but this morning his balls are sticking right out more so than normal and they are more hairless and he's being quite timid.

Is this a medical problem or a macho thing to show the new guys he's the king of the castle!?

I'm really worried... Can someone please reply.


Thanks and I hope your Rat man is feeling better!

Let me know what happened with him.
