the male guppies have a shorter life span because they're literally nagged to death.

A dead male with a long-lost color pattern can later give birth...

Say what?

I looked and looked but couldn't find an image of a zombie Val Venis anywhere on the net.


\total lie, I thought of the idea and never bothered to look as I assumed there wasn't such a thing

That's nothing.

Deep sea angler fish live in such desolate environments that it is often difficult to find a mate. They've found a solution for this: The male is about one-tenth the size of the female and can't live very well without her so when he finally encounters one he latches onto her underside like a parasitical worm. He fuses to the female's flesh, feeding off her food and blood until eventually all his organs atrophy including his brain, heart and eyes, leaving only a sperm-producing sex organ to fertilize her eggs. Females can even have multiple males attached to them.

Male cuttlefish often disguise themselves as female cuttlefish to get closer to other females and mate with them. I don't understand how this works, but they're cephalopods, and cephalopods can do anything.

The female betta fish is prone to eating her own eggs so the male frequently chases her away and he cares for them until hatching.

Some species of female cichlids carry eggs in their mouths and perform oral sex on the males to fertilize them. And while we're on the subject of fish, the freshwater mangrove rivulus is the only vertebrate in the world that is hermaphroditic and it can self-fertilize so it doesn't need to mate at all. It also has the unusual ability to live in trees for large portions of its life.

Seriously, undersea procreation is farking weird, man.

stored sperm in females, who have much longer lifespans (two years) than males (three-four months)

A human equivalent would be for us to have women around who were 90 years old and still very fertile.


O.o

So, men: If human females discover how to store gametes we're doomed. We need a plan and we need it now.

"The researchers studied guppy behaviour in a Trinidad river and found that the females are segregating the sexes by choosing to spend time in areas where there are high numbers of predators. The brightly-coloured males are far more likely to attract the predators than the dull brown females, so they keep their distance."

There's a species of Molly where the entire population is female.  When conditions are good, they reproduce through self-cloning.  When conditions get bad, some of the females will turn into males to reproduce sexually to increase the genetic diversity of the population.
