Hi JACustomer, thanks for your question. Are you only seeing one sack? How old is this rabbit? Is this the first time you have seen this? Do you have a picture to share?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for your reply, JACustomer. Sorry for the delay. It really sounds like you were seeing the scrotum on your boy. If so, this is an entirely normal thing for rabbits. Rabbits have the ability to withdraw their testicles up into their body, which makes seeing testicles from the outside of the rabbit difficult. Because rabbits tend to be more reserved animals, its common for males not to have the testicles present on the outside of the body. This would only happen in the more relaxed individuals. Here are some sources you can check out to see if, indeed, this is what you've seen. If he will permit you, it may be worthwhile to gently palpate the area next time you see it and determine if testicles are present. Sexing video that shows testicles: here: you're seeing something entirely different, please provide a photograph and I'll help you to determine what is present.
