Moles[edit]

In the section on moles, it states

"It has also been recorded that certain species of mole will 'rape' new borns of their own species, the biological advantage to this is that when those moles mature and become fertile, they will become pregnant with the sperm of the mole that had mated with them at a very young age."

The problem i see is that can the sperm survive inside the newborns for long enough to them to mature? I am by no means an expert on the subject, and found nothing at a quick glance on the cycle of maturation on moles, but to the best of my knowledge seminal fluid can only sustain the sperm inside the female body for 40 or so hours. That of course as a result of the natural reaction of the female body to destroy the semen immediatly after it enters the vaginal cavity.

As I said, i am no expert on the subject, so I may be far off here, I'm not going to touch it, I'll let someone who knows what they are doing do that, but I felt the need to point this out.

"Stags fighting" as an example of a sexual behavior[edit]

In this revision by User:DrChrissy, "stags fighting" was given as an example of a sexual behavior, although this description seems counter-intuitive. Is the description still accurate, and are there any WP:reliable sources that we can cite in order to verify it? Jarble (talk) 21:57, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

I think it is common knowledge that stags fight during the rut when they compete for access to females. Perhaps the caption needs re-wording. Is this what you think should have an RS? DrChrissy (talk) 22:04, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
