The playgrounds of the animal world are full of color: only the strongest are allowed to get close to the clownfish ladies – Counselor

Spring fever everywhere! Also in the animal kingdom. Whether it’s a lynx, a mole, a frog or a bird – the slow winter is over and it’s time to save offspring. Everyone has very different ways of fishing than a partner. For most people, this is somewhat unsurprising. You’re bobbing, making loud calls and discovering a potential life mate.

But there are also a few candidates who go the extra mile to earn the object of desire. If necessary, the gender is changed without further ado.

transsexuals

clown fish They swim wildly around each other during courtship. However, the hierarchy is clearly organized: only the strongest and largest clown fish can mate with the female. She is always the principal. They are usually subordinate to a group of seven to eight male clownfish. If the lady of the house dies, her lover soon changes his gender and becomes female. Then she becomes the new mistress and the next older male becomes the lover – quite simply.

Sea Shuryo Shake

If you want to mate large grebe crested The two meet by performing a stationary choreography in the water. They swim very close to each other, dragging their feathers from time to time, rocking their heads back and forth and twisting their necks right and left. In between, they present each other with limp algae and plant parts in their beaks, then drop back into the water.

Keep your eyes peeled, in April the dances can be seen at many lakes.

blue smiley

This is not a photomontage! feathers bird of paradise collarThey are colored the blackest black found in nature. But he wants to draw the attention of the ladies to himself, so he opens his fluorescent blue collar and raises his dark wings straight. Because of the bruises on its head, the native bird of New Guinea looks like a black and blue smiley face. So he hovers around and jumps around the curious female, hoping she’ll find him sexy.

By the way, after mating, the smiling bird immediately flees while the female builds the nest on her own, incubates, takes care of the young and never hears from the former again.

There is no such thing as the right decoration

Whoever shows the greatest talent in interior design gets the woman – that’s the motto of Australians silk trellis bird. The male cleverly lines up a small area with branches and then collects different things from each place to decorate it. And it is preferable that things be only blue, because female birds love it very much. You can often see straws, crayons, bottle caps, etc., as females flutter from place to place and evaluate the decorations on display. The man with the most creative touch wins the lady’s heart.

Who is the mother decides here in the fight

Flatworms Basically they have sexual characteristics and in courtship they quarrel about who is mother and father. The reason: the father sways after mating, and the mother has all the work with the offspring. Battle Weapon: Her penis. Worms use this to try to penetrate each other’s skin and get rid of sperm. This scramble can last for up to an hour. The winner’s sperm eventually travels through the skin to the fertilized eggs of the mother worm.

Shared custody

Seahorse Not only is she impressive when it comes to a romantic streak, she is also a model of liberation. Males and females intertwine closely with their long tails wrapped around each other in a love dance in the water. The female then empties about 200 eggs into the male’s chest pocket. Then the seahorse father fertilizes these eggs, incubates them and gives birth to them.
