|Bees mate by exchanging royal jelly.|
|The drone injects his stinger into the females carapace, depositing millions of sperm.|
|The drone chews a substance created in the hive, then regurgitates it into the Queens mouth.|
|The queen bee mates with up to 18 drones during flight, receiving several million sperm cells|
The queen is the only sexually developed female in the hive. She is the largest bee in the colony. A two-day-old larva is selected by the workers to be reared as the queen. She will emerge from her cell 11 days later to mate in flight with approximately 18 drones. During mating, she receives several million sperm cells, which will last her entire life span of nearly two years. The queen starts to lay eggs about 10 days after mating. A productive queen can lay 3,000 eggs in a single day.
|Snails crawl out of their shells to roll in a nutrient rich fluid exuded by the male.|
|Snails mate by backing into each other under their shells.|
|Snails are hermaphroditic.|
|The male snail rubs heads with the female snail, depositing sperm under her skin.|
Snails are true hermaphrodites, and self reproduce.
|The female produces 18 - 20 young per litter.|
|The average rat litter is small, between 3 and 6, up to 5 times per year.|
|Rats have an average of 10 babies per litter.|
|Rats produce litters twice per year, averaging between 15 and 30 pups.|
Females produce as many as 8 litters each year with as many as 20 young per litter. The gestation period is three weeks, and the young reach sexual maturity in about two months.
|Butterflies deposit eggs inside of trees.|
|Butterflies deposit eggs inside flowers.|
|The eggs are usually laid in a protected location on or near the plants that the soon-to-be caterpillar will eat.|
|Butterfly eggs are usually laid in nests spun from a web like material.|
Females butterflies lay many eggs during their short life to insure that even a small number of these eggs will survive. Caterpillars (butterfly larva) hatch from eggs. The eggs are usually laid in a protected location on or near the plants that the soon-to-be caterpillar will eat. Most eggs are attached to the plant with a fast-drying glue-like chemical that the female butterfly secretes along with the egg.
|Butterflies mate by rubbing their legs together, known as the Dance of The Butterfly|
|Butterflies mate on the ground or in the air|
|Butterflies don´t sexually reproduce.|
|Butterflies reproduce by laying eggs, which the male then fertilises by exuding a sticky fluid over them.|
Butterflies mate on the ground or in the air; internal fertilization of the eggs takes from a few seconds to many minutes or hours. During mating, the male transfers a sperm packet (called a spermatophore) into the female; these sperm will fertilize the female´s eggs.
|The aggressive female cricket "dances" with the male cricket, then kills him.|
|Crickets are self fertilising insects, requiring no mate for reproduction.|
|Crickets bear live young called cricklets|
|Crickets reproduce sexually, producing from one to three generations per year.|
Crickets reproduce sexually, producing from one to three generations per year. The females usually lay eggs in the ground or in soft-stemmed plants during the late summer or fall. The eggs hatch in the spring and the emerging young are similar to the adults except for their smaller size and lack of wings.
