Male Guppies Hang With Ugly Buddies To Seem More Attractive!

Guppy

In a new study at Italy's University of Padua, they found that male guppies would rather hang around less attractive males when in the presence of females!

This sounds like something that humans could use to their advantage. Ha!

What the researchers did was drop a guppy into the middle of a fish tank.

On one end was a female with two brightly-colored males (aka pretty boys) and the other end was another female with two dull fish.

The male guppies dropped in the middle spent about 62% of the time hanging closer to the female surrounded by the "ugly" males!

This obviously makes sense because in nature, it's often the flashiest male who mates.

The lead researcher said:

"As a researcher I cannot compare human mating systems with the guppy's one. But if you ask me as a person, sure … I saw this tactic working pretty well with humans."

See! We def agree it tends to work for humans too!

Nobody wants to bring Brad Pitt as their wingman!

Give us Andy Dick! LOLz!
