Learning About Animal Genitalia Is Really Fascinating Stuff

By Casey Chan on at

Meet Patty Brennan, she has one of the most interesting jobs that anyone could possibly ever have because she’s an evolutionary biologist who studies the genital structures of sharks, birds, snakes, and more. Basically, she finds out how animals screw. And it’s much more complicated than you’d think, because of spiky hemipenises, corkscrew spiral penises, reinforced vaginas, and so much other good stuff.

It’s pretty fascinating to see how nature works, especially since how so much is still unknown. [Science via Digg]
