Osedax: Sex Life of an Ocean Bone Worm

from  Stuff To Blow Your Mind

Mar 3, 2016

Enter the world of the osedax worm, where mouthless female scavengers liquefy the bones of dead whales with acid-drenched roots -- and where each female's body contains a harem of tiny, sperm-producing males.

Hardt for a discussion on this and other fascinating modes of deep-water reproduction. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
