Thankful Day #21

Thankful Day #21: I am thankful for sexual reproduction. Now, now...calm down. It's not all fun and games--for example, this poor Australian jewel beetle gets tricked by the super-stimulating features of Australian beer bottles (which share features considered very sexy in female jewel beetles) into humping the beer bottle until he dies. However, in general, sexual reproduction gives a species much greater genetic variation and adaptability.
