Mystery Of Nature: The “Penis Snake”, An Amphibian That Only Breathes Through Its Skin.
Nature is filled with the strangest and most extraordinary animals. Both their specificity is unique in their kind. After their discovery, researchers and wildlife lovers want to know a little more about their origin, character, and method of reproduction.
The penis snake, known in science the atretochoana eiselti, is a limbless reptile. It is related to the human penis, the origin of its name “snake penis”, but even more with an earthworm. Except that this amphibian is bigger and longer than an ordinary earthworm.
Discovered in Brazil recently and more precisely in the Madeira river of the Amazon forest, it can reach a length of 75 cm. It is an aquatic animal. It feeds on earthworms, fish and other invertebrates that live in water. His respiratory system is located all along his skin because he doesn’t have a lung. What a foreign animal.
Atretochoana eiselti is a species of caecilian originally known only from two preserved specimens discovered by Sir Graham Hales in the Brazilian rainforest, while on an expedition with Sir Brian Doll in the late 1800s, but rediscovered in 2011.
A females cloaca is shallow. The first snake to successfully wrap his tail around the female and meet at the right point for intercourse to occur gets to mate. Male snakes have a pair of intimacy organ organs called hemipenis and these extend and release the sperm into the female snake.
Male garter snakes form a mating ball in which each tries to get the female to open her cloaca so that he can insert his penis and mate with her. When males catch the pheromone scent of a female, they will swarm over her, forming a “mating ball. “
