Little Winst's Erm Little bits!

Hey there, this is a serious question but kinda gross so don't read if you're eating your tea! By my estimations Winston Shiny is about 10 weeks old. Which by my estimation makes him an adult mouse (correct me if I'm wrong!)

He has always had two rather large furry lumps which I assume are his testicles but tonight while he was exploring the sleeves of my cardigan I noticed 2 smaller lumps which look pink and naked sticking out from his furry ones. Is this normal? I have no idea what mouse genitals are supposed to look like and knowing mice could be prone to tumours and this is the first time I have seen these lumps I was a little concerned.

I am probably just being an overprotective mum but I hate to think it is something bad. Just figured if they were normal I would've spotted them before.

His bits don't look like either of those, his teste lumps are massive and on top of the big lumps he has two smaller lumps that stick out. Ah well maybe he is just the most unique mouse on earth, he seems happy and healthy enough that's the main thing Thanks Angelica

David's sort of look like that too. Eddies don't look like the picture, maybe it's age?

That is normal.It is nothing to worry about,they are his testicles.

Awww that's a huge relief, when they appeared out of nowhere I thought he had some sort of tumour! Thanks guys Now I just have to work on getting him to be less of a tart and keep his bits hidden from view. Honestly you would think I was running a mouse peep show. Suck em in Winst!

i think it's just that part of the testies are hairy, and the tips of them no, so it can look like 2 bumps since they look bigger with the hair! but from that side view, looks totally normal
