Today we’re (finally) going to talk about animal babies! But more than just puppies and piglets we’re going to be looking at their genes. Sexual reproduction is part of the very definition of what it means to be an animal and as you’ll see life has found a variety of methods to pass down genetic information. We’ll also discuss the differences between sex and gender, take a closer look at sex determination systems, examine how same-sex behavior happens all across the animal kingdom, and live a day-in-the-life of the serially hermaphroditic clownfish!
