Sex On Six Legs

Over 80% of all animal species are insects, including some 350,000 species of beetles, a quarter of all creatures on earth! A new book by Marlene Zuk called Sex on Six legs: Lessons On Life, Love & Language From The Insect World has just been published by Harcourt. As well as giving some amazing insights into insect's behaviour & communication this book outlines some astonishing details about their reproduction techniques. For example some male insects entice the females by attaching a high protein snack to their sperm. As the female eats the meal the male's sperm is draining into her body. The book is filled with such tantalising tales & well worth checking out.
