Mosquitofish Has FOUR Hooks In Penis To Snag Females

Does anyone else get the feeling that nature is kinda…creepy?

A male fish in Mexico is hooking every ichthyologist's attention (LITERALLY!) with its man parts.

The newly identified Gambusia quadruncus, or Llanos Mosquito fish has four prongs in his penis, an evolutionary device to lure females.

It is more costly (obvis) for a female to reproduce than a male, so the female fish developed a block of tissue that shuts off the genital spore from unwanted partners.

Now, the guys have countered that with penises with hooks in them…

Again….nature is pretty gross.
