which animal are you?

The seahorse is the only creature where the male becomes pregnant. The female inserts a nipple-like appendage into the male and releases her eggs into his stomach. He then discharges his sperm over them, and once the eggs are fertilized, his belly takes on the rounded shape.

For the mouthbrooder catfish, which lives off Mozambique, fertilization takes place in the female’s mouth. She releases her ova into the water and then turns round and swallows them. When the male swims by, she opens her mouth to swallow his sperm as well. The young fish remain in the mouth until they have absorbed their egg yolk.

Since the female bedbug has no sexual opening, the male drills his own vagina, using his curved, pointed penis as a drill. The male then inserts his sperm and the blood-sucking female feeds on some of it when blood is in short supply.

The female praying mantis eats her partner after sex. During copulation, the larger female hooks her deadly arms around him and begins nibbling away at him, but his sex drive is so strong that he can carry on even while being eaten.

The male swamp antechinus, a mouse-like marsupial from Australia, is the only mammal which dies after mating. The males dedicate their lives to a round of non-stop copulation until they literally drop dead. The majority die of starvation because they have no time to feed between sex.

  1. Now Kd,
    You didn’t really expect to publish this without a whole lot of comments did you?
    So what is the relationship between men belittling women, and criticizing their bodies if they don’t have big enough breasts- to animals having the male become pregnant and females eating males after
    sex? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm. I guess there is justice after all!

  2. Yikes! Are you telling us that some of the men attending Blogcon 2002 may Check In but they won’t Check Out?

    If so, I hope they “check out” like the little antechinus with great big grins.

    I really love getting email notifications of your posts!

    Ok, what HAVE you been reading? Or – I know – you ODed on the Discovery Channel last night didn’t you? I had no clue about the bedbug – wow. *moment of awed silence* I know that lots of female spiders make a tidy meal of their mates after sex though – apparently it’s a big trend. And now I’m going to go feel very sad and grieve for the poor lil antechinus.
