In the species Xylocaris maculipennis the male will actually stab his penis into other males, and inject his sperm into them. The sperm then finds its way into the testes of the attacked male, and will subsequently be passed out when the recipient has sex. Such attacks may even take place upon a male who is engaging in sex with a female. This allows a male to fertilize a female without even having sex with her, which is evolutionarily desirable, if not as much fun.

Ants are yet to be found in the cold, icy regions around the poles.

Thanks! Odds and OWN. :thumbs_up: :D

When a nest of large fungus growing termites is disturbed, a rustling sound can clearly be heard, even outside the nest. The sound spreads like lightning and within seconds, over it's range of hundreds of meters of tunnels, is put on high alert. How and with what do the soldier termites make this noise?

I actually know that the answer is correct, though Siobain might have had another answer in mind.

What is the factor which turns usually individualistic grasshoppers in to giant swarms which act as a unit. (Describe how it happens.)
