1. A Victim
Although Black Widows got the label, these spiders aren’t the only species prone to sexual cannibalism.

2. aggressive (Sea Lion? protect harem.. Although lots of species have http://www.matrita.com/online/ aggressive males, I like using sea lion bulls because I think its more unexpected for readers. People don’t think of sea lions and seals being aggressive.)
3. Pregnant (sea horses)
4. Clingy: Shistosoma… permanent in copula once adults Males have a ventral groove called a “gynaecophoral canal” A female takes up residence in the gynaecophoral canal Pairs of worms are reported to remain “in copula” & lay eggs for up to 25 years.
Although these guys are gross, its actually their little eggs that cause damage to their host.

5. Also female (asexual or sex flipflop or both sexual organs. Androgynous, pick what knd, those that can switch between sexes or those that simply have both sexual organs. Fish is a good place to look, or amphibians or go smaller organisms.)

Ears in Flight

Posted on by Kallen in Ponder This | 1 Comment

I’m currently reading The Book of Barely Imagined Beings : a 21st Century Beastiary and I came across a quote mentioning Dumbo’s method of flight:

“No creature has actually turned its ears into wings like Dumbo the elephant, although a little mouse-like creature called the Long-eared Jerboa looks like a cartoon version or one.

I’m http://skylitecellars.com/ fascinated by the chapter on Quetzalcoatlus (a prehistoric flying pterosaur) and flight, especially on how such large creatures were able to take to the air.

I wrote a whole series of posts on Dumbo‘s genetic heritage, but never covered his mechanics of flight.

The Book of Barely Imagined Beings by Caspar Henderson is a fascinating mix of science and philosophy that explores how the richness of the animal kingdom influences what it is to be human.
