The comments section of the video was filled with excited spectators who claimed they saw April the giraffe pushing contractions. Animal Adventure Park confirmed the contractions and said the vet took note of it.
Researchers tackled the "orgasm gap" between different genders and sexual orientations, then shared ways to increase orgasm frequency.
Researchers have found that the markings of female birds can tell us more than just their species and gender. Repeating a previous study has yielded a surprising discovery refuting what was thought to be a link between their markings and aggressive behavior when defending their nests. Published in The Auk: Ornithological Advances, the study reveals that the meanings behind the markings of female birds may change from one place to another despite a similarity in species.
Gender is such a big issue that it isn't confined to just humans. Researchers from the Yale and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have discovered something extraordinary about frogs: chemicals in road salts used to de-ice paved surfaces alter the sex ratios in nearby frog populations.
A Swedish sex education group started a petition asking NASA to bring condoms to space, not to educate aliens about it but to inform the human race about the power of contraceptives.
Contact, rather than waterborne chemical signals, induces sex change in marine snails known as slipper limpets.
Gender of many reptiles, including crocodilians and turtles, is largely determined by the temperature in which eggs incubate. When taking a closer look at the molecular mechanisms behind this phenomena known as temperature-dependent sex determination, researchers discovered a thermosentive protein inside the egg plays a key role.
Warmer climates are yielding more female hatchlings, researchers explain in a new study. This could have serious impacts on the survival of struggling loggerhead sea turtle populations in Florida.
Yale researchers discovered more female green frogs are being born in suburban ponds. They recently linked this unbalanced sex ratio to common lawn plants, such as clover.
The traditional way of the animal kingdom is that males rule, and females reap the benefits of being pampered baby-makers. Of course, there are always exceptions, especially among birds, arachnids, and even humans. However, there is one exception that came as a bit of a surprise. Female lemurs, it seems, will often bully their mates, stealing food, marking territory, and even ruling over their neighbors. Now researchers think they have determined what makes these imposing lady lemurs so different.
Stegosaurus were known for their spiked tails and armor-like exterior, and new research shows that their iconic bony plates may have determined the sex of these dinosaurs, according to new research.
Exposure to bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical used in various plastic consumer products, is disrupting turtle reproduction in terms of their sexual differentiation, according to a new study.
It's an iconic image: a wrinkled great-grandmother hovering over a swollen belly while she dangles a needle on thread. "It's a boy" or "it's a girl," she'd proclaim without any real idea of what she's talking about. Scientists have long argued that there is no sure-fire way to determine an unborn child's gender. Even ultrasound can get it wrong. For lemurs, however, all it might take is a sniff of strong motherly BO.
In a new study female flies were shown to live longer than their male counterparts, the result of mating pressures, shedding light on the mechanisms involved in aging across species.
If a woman tells her husband that the tuna salad in the fridge smells "a bit off," he probably shouldn't eat it. Chances are she can smell subtle-but-telling odors that he can't, thanks to the fact that her brain is built to boast a superior sense of smell.
