Can Male Flies Get Too Sexy?

Filed under: Insects

Sexy Fly

Is there such thing as too sexy?

Researchers from the University of Queensland in Australia have proven it's possible.

The researchers engineered a population of male Drosophila serrata flies to release excess amounts of a combination of pheromones that female flies find super sexy.

Then, through a process of selective breeding, they studied the descendants of the supercharged males.

The study found that while sexual attractiveness in male fruit flies increased over generations, after seven generations the females stop mating with them.

Meaning - there is a biological cost to being too attractive.

Although male sexual traits are often obvious in animals, like the bright colors of a peacock tail and the mane of a lion, an overabundance of sexuality may not be a good thing.

What can human's take from this? One researcher says -

"that very attractive individuals may well have something wrong with them — they may not be as good as they seem to be at first glance.”

We're still not ready to feel bad for Brad Pitt.

London's Natural History Museum Is Getting Wild

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueWildlife

Animal sex exhibit

For those in the London area still struggling to find the perfect date for Valentine's Day, maybe consider showing your loved one some wild sex at the Natural History Museum!

It's not as dirty as it sounds, we're talking about animal sex!

And it's not as dirty as that sounds either…

"Sexual Nature" at the London Natural History Museum explores the diverse ways in which animals have evolved to procreate, such as a snail's love darts, the detachable penis of the paper nautilus, or the outsized testes of the promiscuous chimp.

Sounds fascinating! We're curious to learn how a detachable penis comes in handy.

The exhibition, which asks visitors "to leave their preconceptions at the door", opens this Friday.

Anyone is welcome on one condition, as Tate Greenhalgh says:

"We ask people to be open-minded when looking at potentially surprising, maybe shocking things that animals do that would be outlawed in human society."

And no giggling when you're greeted by a video projection of bonobo apes having sex — sometimes with a baby clinging on the back, or midway through munching a pineapple.

While we can't promise a few chuckles won't escape, we think this sounds like an exciting and educational exhibit that we hope comes to a museum in the United States in the future.

Polar Bear Mates Flirt

Filed under: Silly!YouTubeEndangeredFunnyPolar Bear


This is too funny!

Watch this video of male and female polar bears "flirting".

The male just lays there while the female strikes a pose and flaunts her goods to him.

In fact, he doesn't even get interested until she practically bends over in front of him.

Hmmm…this sounds familiar!

Don't worry though, ladies, this polar bear still plays hard to get even after she arouses her lazy mate.

German Zoo Separates Gay Vultures In Order To Make Them Mate

Filed under: Zoo


Uh Oh! We hear trouble…

Many gay rights organizations are up in arms in germany when they found out that a pair of male vultures was split up in order to force them to be heterosexual.

It all started back in March, when Guido and Detlef started their homemaking together. Showing no interest in female company, they built a nest, and would groom one another.

Last week Guido was removed form the zoo and replaced with a female vulture from the Czech Republic in order to promote mating.

Detlef and his new female companion have yet to bond. Also, since both Detlef and Guido were 14 years old, it is unsure if they will even be up for mating.

I guess we will just have to wait and see what happens. Maybe they were meant to be together!
