Hairy tragus

Description : With ageing, coarse hairs may appear on the tragus of some males.

This is a form of secondary sexual characteristic which has been called the hairy tragus.

It is interesting to note that the Greek word tragus (goat) alludes to these hairs which bear a fancied resemblance to the beard of a goat.
