An Intimate Millipede Moment
Ok more sex education in this blog entry… so that you would understand what’s going on in the pictures. 😛 The male millipede’s sexual organs are called “gonopods”, located three segments begind the head. When mating, the male will transfer a hard sperm package called a spermatorphore into the female spermathecae.
#1 Mmmm… stealing a kiss! lol
#2 Trying to get into position. The female was running around but once the male tried to mount her, she stopped moving and allowed him to do his work!
#3 Front view. Female looks a bit shy here.
#4 Moving around. They didn’t keep still at all, got a lot of blur pictures because of that.
#5 Closer view of the front
#6 Getting impatient.. when are they really doing it???
#7 Decided to do face-hugging instead? Looks like a wrestling match!
