Male Snails Babysit For Other Papa Snails!

In a new study, researchers found that on average only about in four of the hundreds of snail eggs that a male snail carries on his back are actually his.

Some snails carry the kids of as many as 25 other snails!

Sounds like nature is a depraved sex fest!

A researcher said:

"It opens our eyes to viewing other kinds of behavior not as weird or harmful but as normal."

We think he's upset that his male friends won't baby sit his kids.

At least that's what it sounds like. LOLz!

So because female snails do it all the time with anyone, they glue their eggs to the nearest male.

So a male snail can end up with all sorts of eggs glued to him!

It's a pretty interesting evolutionary trait!

Hooray, male snails!
