Damn nature, you nasty! Just look at what you’ve made these sick snakes do:
The red-sided garter snake has one of the craziest sex lives of any creature out there. These snakes get together once a year in Manitoba, Canada, when the female emerges from hibernation, and release a pheromone that attracts hundreds of the male snakes in her vicinity to come by for a good time – all at the same time. These “mating balls” have been known to get huge, sometimes incorporating over 30,000 snakes.
As if competing with up to 30,000 other gents for the affection of one female wasn’t bad enough – sometimes it turns out the female isn’t even really a female. Occasionally, a “she-male” snake will release pheromones and start a mating ball.
