It’s #FunFactFriday! #DYK that Harbour Porpoises have Megatestes?! That’s right, male Harbour Porpoise testes can swell to 4% of their body mass. The idea is to produce so much sperm that other males’ competing sperm is flooded out or just outnumbered in the female’s reproductive tract. If humans employed the same mating strategy, human testes would be 1.25 kg each (compared to the 17-27 g they are now). That’s at least 46 x bigger. #whaletales #porpoise #didyouknow #trivia #fff #porpoiseareawesome #harbourporpoise #porpoiseofinstagram #getonaboat #exploreBC #salishsea#porpoisewatching #howesound #yvr⠀
