    I've just discovered that it means where a slug chews of the penis of the male after mating. The male then becomes female for the rest of its life. Transgendering in the animal kingdom - isn't nature wonderfulxx(

    The b*stards eat my dahlias and my cabbages but no way are they getting anywhere near my old man:ohmy:
     
  7. <biology textbook> slugs are hermaphrodites, so they don't have a 'male' or 'female', when a slug has been apophallated (oo-er) this just means that it can't fertilise another slug's eggs but can still carry it's own. </biology textbook>

    Not sure if this is transgendering - maybe gender removal??

    Slugs are so gross - we get them in the kitchen - THANK GOD I have never seen any doing any apophallation xx(:biggrin:

    <yack> ever stood on one with your bare foot? <shiver> I think I'd rather stand bare-footed on an upturned plug.

    Thankfully I've never been forced into deciding between the two though.

    there is no pain greater than standing barefoot on an upturned plug. In the dark.

    it surely must be male before it's been apophollated, otherwise it wouldn't have a penis in the first place?
    Or have they all got one at birth - if so, then some must by definition start off gay?
