To expand the subject of Sea Horses.

Is it true that Komodo dragons (monitor lizords) are able to self procreate?

Parthenogenesis

Parthenogenetic baby Komodo dragon, Chester Zoo, England

A Komodo dragon at London Zoo named Sungai laid a clutch of eggs in late 2005 after being separated from male company for more than two years. Scientists initially assumed she had been able to store sperm from her earlier encounter with a male, an adaptation known as superfecundation.[55] On 20 December 2006, it was reported that Flora, a captive Komodo dragon living in the Chester Zoo in England, was the second known Komodo dragon to have laid unfertilised eggs: she laid 11 eggs, and seven of them hatched, all of them male.[56] Scientists at Liverpool University in England performed genetic tests on three eggs that collapsed after being moved to an incubator, and verified Flora had never been in physical contact with a male dragon. After Flora's eggs' condition had been discovered, testing showed Sungai's eggs were also produced without outside fertilization.[57] On 31 January 2008, the Sedgwick County Zoo in Wichita, Kansas, became the first zoo in the Americas to document parthenogenesis in Komodo dragons. The zoo has two adult female Komodo dragons, one of which laid about 17 eggs on 19–20 May 2007. Only two eggs were incubated and hatched due to space issues; the first hatched on 31 January 2008, while the second hatched on 1 February. Both hatchlings were males.[58][59]

An average of $8/day on makeup seems like a lot to me. Other enhancements of course increase the cost per day. 

People can and do what they want with there hair, nails, tatoos, body piercing, and what not. 

A friends daughter began piercing her ear lobes. The last I saw her ear piercinigs had decorative plugs that were about 1" in diameter.   That and some other stuff some people do as kids is theatrical yet somewhat irreversable.

Makeup on the other hand is temporary.  What ingredience are in makup?  Is there truth to lipstick containing lead?

Carmex Lip Balm, a product sold in the U.S. causes chapped lips.

I watched the seahorse documentary on that topic, but we're talking human here.

Comment by Doone on April 14, 2018 at 18:06

I guess it would work,  seems more complicated however

Today I found out that female seahorses impregnating their male mates, rather than the other way around.

The reproductive process of a seahorse begins when a male and a female meet up and “dance”. For several days prior to the actual act of mating, the two fish (yes, they are fish) will meet to intertwine their tails and swim together. They also sometimes grip the same strand of sea grass with their tails, and whirl around it in unison. Scientists believe this courtship and dancing synchronizes the movements of the two fish to prepare the male to receive eggs at the same time the female is ready to deposit them.

After several days of this, the male blows water through an egg pouch on his stomach. The water flow expands and opens the pouch to demonstrate to the female that it is empty and ready for her to insert her… ovipositor, an organ used to lay eggs.

At that point, the two swim in a sort of snout-to-snout embrace, spiraling upward through the water trying to line up so that the female can inserts her ovipositor into the male’s pouch. She does this several times, resting between, to avoid becoming exhausted.

As the eggs leave the female body, she slims down. As the male receives the eggs, he plumps up.  This process can last up to eight hours.  In the end, she deposits anywhere from a few dozen to thousands of eggs into the male’s pouch, depending on the species of seahorse.

When it’s done, the female does not stay to cuddle, but simply swims away and finds a nice place to rest while her ovipositor contracts, which can take a couple hours.

After his lady friend is gone, the male attaches himself to a nearby plant and releases sperm directly into the water around him to fertilize the eggs, which are now embedded in the wall of his pouch. The pouch provides oxygen and prolactin to nurture the eggs.

While the female chose to leave right after the mating, she’s at least nice enough to drop by and check up on her pregnant partner.  During the gestation period, anywhere from two to four weeks, the female visits the male on a daily basis, though not for long.  The two simply interacting for a few minutes each time, swimming together much like they did during courtship.

As the male prepares to give birth, his pouch gets rounder and rounder. In the minutes immediately preceding birth, his muscles contort, bending him backward and forward repeatedly for about ten minutes until all the babies (known as “fry”) explode out of the pouch.  There can be as few as eight and as many as 200 seahorse fry born at a time.

Amazingly, the male’s pouch returns to its normal size and position in only about an hour and he is ready to mate again within a few hours, and sometimes even does!

The male seahorse may give birth, but as with many fish, he does not stick around to nurture the young, but leaves them on their own. In the end, around 5 infant seahorses in every 1,000 survive to adulthood. Many are eaten by predators or die of starvation when ocean currents push them away from food sources.

It would be the same  as now, but men would be women and vice versa.  You would have to take the egg from the female and fertilize it in the man.  I suppose that instead of a hose the male penis would have to function more like a vacuum cleaner.  I am now looking on Google for an animal that fits the bill.

Hahahaha.....a lot more single child families!

Comment by Stephen on April 14, 2018 at 17:44

I often wonder that if it was men that gave birth, the rules of the game would be totally different 

Comment by Mrs.B on April 14, 2018 at 17:07

Blue mascara looks great on me, & I have a red of all things, & it looks good too. It doesn't show very much on my black lashes but its just enough to brighten up a bit. Green is ok, but the purple just continues to look black.....blah!.....& I am a purple freak! Brown is just more black on mine, so I don't spend the money.

Comment by Suzanna on April 14, 2018 at 16:45

She was brave to have one after all that.

Black does get boring and I've seen they have other colours but not had a try yet. If I'm feeling like a change I wear khaki or plum eyeshadow but mostly brown.

Comment by Mrs.B on April 14, 2018 at 15:14

My eyes are prominent, so all I use is a little mascara & shadow sometimes. I use several colours of shadow, & lately I've been trying coloured mascaras....so tired of black black black. I don't do anything with my brows.

When my neighbour became pregnant again, she managed to struggle through it & have a healthy baby girl. She refused to go through all that again, so just had the one.
