clarification?[edit]

Is this species' mating an example of traumatic insemination, or is the spiking simply an effort to hold onto the other individual? The text isn't quite clear on that point. --Piledhigheranddeeper (talk) 02:08, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

It's an example of traumatic insemination I think, but the source did state that it was prostate fluid that was injected, and I assume that this contains sperm. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 08:16, 5 October 2017 (UTC)
