Now that's a bushy snout!!!

Does anyone know if the bushyness is related to age?

i found a common b/n today just as bushy about 1 year old and been breeding for 6 mths... so not necessarily an age thing but you'd expect older males to have a good head of bristles.... more a maturity thing... like people... some boys start growing beards at 15 years of age and some others barely grow a beard at 25-30 years of age...
