Some fathers are more involved in parenting and some are not. Is it really a matter of size?

An article has been floating around about the relation of men's testicle size and
how much effort men put into being dads. According to this research, smaller
testicles make better fathers.

Is there large enough difference in men's testicle size, for women to actually
know if their partner has smaller or bigger, have you ever noticed?

. Does anybody know from experience if this may be true? or at least some truth.?

Sorry Dove

Apparently it started with a link between lower testosterone levels making dads better/more involved caregivers, and they were curios as to whether the link was also between testicle volume (sperm count and quality) was also related.
They've found that the correlation is significant, but that personal choice is really the main factor.
They're also apparently looking into which way the correlation goes, whether men with smaller testicles are just better caregivers, or if those men who are better caregivers end up with their testicles shrinking.

Still a better study than figuring out the force behind a penguin fart XD

And yet interestingly steroids (which mimic testosterone) make ones testicles smaller. So explain that with the lower testosterone, smaller testicles theory.

Generally true in the animal kingdom - smaller bollocks (relative to size) are a sign of mammals that spend more time with the family -ie lions have smaller testicles than tigers
