Sex is truly a beautiful experience; it is created as a means to bring life into existence, and also for pleasure. But nature, though wonderful, does have a creepy side to it when it comes to some weird animals.



This post will show some of the weird sides of nature via the ways that certain weird animals mate and ensure the survival of their offspring, beginning with the praying mantis.



1) Praying Mantis:

This animal is really fascinating because it paints a picture of someone going to court trouble by doing something necessary for the species’ survival. The male pray mantis goes courting the female for a mating session.


The courting is successful, fortunately for the male, but here comes the sad part as the male gets its head decapitated by the female during copulation. The body of the male, regardless of being headless, is capable of mating for several hours, and fertilizing the eggs. The decapitated head is said to provide the needed protein required by the female to lay more eggs.


The mating session may seem to have ended badly for the male, depending on how one looks at it, but it is, in a wired way, a win for the male as the male’s sacrifice leads to the birth of more offspring.

Some female spiders also eat their mates after they have died from mating, but the next weird animal story is that of the female spider sacrificing herself for her spiderlings.
