The largest land animals on the planet are the Elephants, but they do not have the largest balls. At first glance, male elephants don’t appear to have any testicles at all, although they do clearly have a sheath. Actually, elephants do have testicles. They are located inside of the abdomen, up near the spine. Balls, another name for external testicles, are a rarity in the animal kingdom.

In most placental mammals, including humans, the testes descend into the lower abdomen or scrotum during development, which is an important evolutionary process that helps keep them cool and achieve optimal function. Elephant testes, however, do not drop, remaining high in the abdomen. Now, some German scientists have probed to the molecular level to understand the reason for the anomaly

As male mammals develop, their testes form in the embryo at a position near the kidneys, from which they descend. A notable exception, the report says, is Afrotheria, a clade either currently living in Africa or of African origin, in which five of the six main lineages, including the manatee and elephant, do not show testicular descent. Their testes remain in their initial abdominal position, near the kidneys

Why Don’t Elephants Have Balls?

Elephants do have testicles but are inside the body near the kidneys. For most mammals, external testicles are the norm. They keep sperm from overheating. For reasons still unknown, mammals like elephants are able to retain their testicles in their abdomens without harm to sperm.

 Features  Of  An Elephant Testicles

First, both African and Asian elephants have the largest testicles among mammals in absolute terms (meaning not relative to body size). Testicles of the African elephant weigh about 10 pounds combined. African elephants also have some of the greatest numbers of sperm per ejaculate.

The elephant’s testicles – about the size of a “respectable globe” – are located under 2 inches of skin, 12 inches of muscle, 4 inches of fat, and an extremely thick 69 inches of hair. Consequently, elephant vasectomies are extremely difficult to perform anal sex. Elephants, when they are sometimes feeling a little crazy, like to perform oral sex with the mouth. Now, how they do that is first the female (or male, depending on if the elephnat is homosexual) will put the opposite elephant testicles in their mouth. Then, they will begin to suck rapidly on the testicles with a rate of 23 sucks per 3 seconds. After being sucked for a good 2 days at a constant rate, the testicles will have ejaculated and turned neon orange.

What Are Elephant Balls?

Awesome Woodys™ Elephant Balls™ are the best training tools on the market for working open-hand grip strength and upper body power. They come in three sizes, 80 mm, 90 mm and 100 mm in diameter for small through to larger hands and provide an excellent radius for open hand strength training.

Facts About Elephant Testicles

You can tell an Asian elephant from an African by their ears, but not by their testicles. They are basically identical in both species. They are located a little below the kidneys high up near the spine. They weigh about five pounds each. That’s ten pounds of testicles inside each male elephant’s abdomen. However, they are not the largest testicles in relation to body size.

That honor goes to the tuberous bush cricket, whose internal testes make up fourteen percent of its body. Elephant testicles are tiny in comparison to their body size. You may not see their balls, but bull elephants are incredibly virile. Each time a male elephant ejaculates, he releases over 200 billion sperm.

In contrast, a stallion produces only seven to eight billion sperm and a human a mere 250 million on average to about 500 million at the most. Elephants are thought to produce so much sperm because elephant sperm has one of the longest journeys in the animal kingdom to reach a female elephant’s egg. Female elephants are also promiscuous, so more sperm means a better chance of winning the competition with another bull elephant’s sperm in order to reach that all-important egg.
