    Do Echidnas have testicles located under their chin?
    I have found sources claiming as such, but none authoritative.

    Although the structure resembles a placental mammal's scrotum, one cannot assume.

    However, I am curious to find out what exactly it is since it seems oddly placed anatomically.

    The following is a link to a baby echidna (puggle) at the Taronga Zoo; hopefully you will see what I am referring to.
