Question

Why are testes located outside the abdominal cavity? What is responsible for bringing about changes in appearance seen in boys at the time of puberty?

Solution

Testes are located outside the abdominal cavity, within a pouch called the scrotum. For the production of sperms, testes require a temperature that is 2–2.5 °C lower than the temperature of the rest of the body. That is why testes are protected inside the scrotum. The hormone testosterone is responsible for the development of secondary sex characteristics in boys.
