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.Â 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 â€“ all at the same time. These â€œmating ballsâ€ 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 â€“ sometimes it turns out the female isn’t even really a female. Occasionally, a â€œshe-maleâ€ snake will release pheromones and start a mating ball.
