LOL! Listen Up!

The tuberous bushcricket has the largest testicles, in relation to its body weight, of any other creature in the world!!

OMG!

This cricket's testes make up 13.8% of its body mass! These organs almost filled up this cricket's entire abdomen!

Karim Vahed, an ecologist at the University of Derby in Britain explained that,

"extra large testes in bushcrickets allow males to transfer relatively small ejaculates to a greater number of females. Males don't put all their eggs — or rather sperm — in one basket."

Interesting….what do U think of this??
