Male reproductive system Internal Organs Testes (gonads)-site of development of the male reproductive cells & the hormone testosterone Epidydymis- coiled tube 13-20 feet in length, ends at the ductus deferens; maturation of sperm cells.

Male reproductive system Ductus deferens- vas deferens, it is the excretory duct of the testes Seminal vesicles- store sperm and produce semen. Prostate gland-lies below the bladder and secretes fluid into the semen.

Male reproductive system Bulbourethral gland- secrete mucous secretion into the seminal fluid before ejaculation. Urethra- extends from the bladder to the urethral orifice (meatus)
