The so called "higher" phylla - including that which contains humans - are bilaterally symmetrical.

It is for this reason, plus to stop me tipping over and providing somewhere to stow my watch and wedding ring, that I have a left side. Otherwise it is of no use whatsoever.

PS - this is my first Animal Safari post!!

[useless info]With the exception of the testes, the left of which is lower in the vast majority of cases.[/useless info]

As monorchids (sp?) know full well, one can even do without one's leftie!

Ooh, I saw two Aussies in a post off, and thought I might see what was going on. Little did I know.... At least I know why this post is titled beasts .

Can you imagine the grant-proposal of the researcher who verified that factoid???

a taylor would be able to, i think. since mens trousers are cut and fitted in the crotch to accomate-- likewise, the testes tend to hang to one side or the other, especially in fitted clothes. a taylor might ask a gentleman if he dresses to the right? -- for no other reason than to fit the trousers.

and since even infants exhibit a tendence to have one testes lower, i expect it wasn't that hard to verify!
