CUDDLE-FISH

Melanie Mangione

🌺Two wonderful facts🌺 1. TOMORROW ID FRIDAY! Fact 2: fact: A female cuttlefish likes to have options when it comes to selecting desirable genes for the next generation. During mating season, she'll play the field, taking on multiple sperm packets and storing them in her mouth cavity until she's comfortable enough to lay her eggs. Male cuttlefish aren't stupid and know about that strategies. They've developed a tactic of their own to counteract it: They'll start mating by shooting a jet stream of water into the female's mouth to clear out sperm from former males who have already laid claim. Pretty smart this boys eyy... 😜🐙 @snorkeldownunder 📸
