Let’s see some of the most peculiar and unusual male reproductive organs.
In the animal world, a male’s sex organ is called penis. The plural form of ‘penis’ is either penes or penises.
These are not figurines. These are different male reproductive organs of different animals.
Bean Weevil (Callosobruchus analis)
One of the weirdest male reproductive organs belongs to the Bean Weevil; it’s covered in spines from base to tip. The spiked penis of the Bean Weevil had been found out by researchers that each act of mating scars the female beetle’s reproductive tract. Such mating method is known as traumatic insemination, an extreme mating technique that some insects have developed.
One of the four species of egg-laying mammals is the Echidna. The male echidna has a weird-looking sex organ – it has a four-headed penis. During mating, the heads on one side ‘shut down’ and do not grow in size; the other two are used to release semen. The heads used are swapped each time the mammal has sex. This animal is endemic to Australia and New Guinea and is also known as “spiny anteater”.
Blue Whale (Balaenoptera musculus)
The Blue Whale, at 32.9 meters long and 172 metric tons in weight, is the largest animal ever. Being the largest animal, male Blue Whale has also the largest penis- it is about 2.4 m or 8 ff long.
Kangaroos, which are native to Australia, have peculiar penises. They have a bifurcated penis, meaning, it separates into two columns, and so the penis has two ends. Ooh… that’s quite bizarre! The marsupial on the above-photo is a Red Kangaroo (Macropus rufus), the largest of all kangaroos.
Dogs (Canis lupus familiaris)
