It's nearly Valentines Day, so lets get jiggy with it

February 10, 2011 It's nearly Valentines Day, so lets get jiggy with it

I was reading the newspaper on my phone this morning (how modern) and came across a nice little piece promoting the latest exhibition at London’s Natural History Museum. It’s all about animal sex; here are some facts that I think you should know before attempting to woo Barnacles, Wrens, Tarantulas or Slugs:

1. Barnacles have a penis 30 times their body length

2. Blue fairy wrens have testicles 25% their body weight

3. A tarantula will “stroke the female’s legs” to ensure she is receptive to some action

4. The banana slug bites off its own penis to leave it in the female, preventing others from depositing more DNA

Nice.
