Small mammals and body parts thereof.

New here, and a probably very silly question. But that's what this comm's for, isn't it?

I'm currently writing in a furry fandom, as you can tell by the icon. In a parody fic I'm thinking vaguely of, some of the furry characters (all small rodents and mustelids) end up spending a day as humans. (Parody of all the annoying Sues who drop in from human Earth.) I'm trying to get in as many details as possible about the transformation and I have the obvious ones (off-balance because of missing tails and smaller feet, teeth and jaws feeling funny, etc). One thing I was wondering about, which is the odd question;

I have heard that, in small mammals, the males don't have nipples. Is this true? If so, is it true for all species or just a few? I'm pretty sure all male primates have them, but other species, I'm not sure of.

Told you it was a strange question. I'd look it up myself, but I don't have access to any of the species mentioned and I am not willing to type "rodent nipples" into Google. God knows what'd come up.

Thanks in advance if anyone can help me.
