Chromodoris reticulata is, to say the least, impressive.  Here are some of the most exotic and, well, fascinating details about this spunky little slug.

  • Chromodoris reticulata loses its penis during sex
  • It is also a hermaphrodite, which means it has both male and femal parts
  • It can make up to three penises in a matter of hours
  • Mating between these two small individuals can last up to nine minutes in length
