Pseudohermaphrodites (intersexes) are more common in goats and pigs than in cattle.  Male psuedohermaphrodites are more common.  This genetic male shows typically ambiguous but mostly female external genitalia.  Such animals usually have testes either in the abdominal cavity or subcutaneously near the scrotum.  A rudimentary penis is visible between the parted lips of the vulva.
